    Cap Question

    I'd like to know how someone would go about swapping out caps directly on the fly, and try to discern the difference. The Flash with clip-leads? One way would be to rig up two different networks with different brand/type of caps, and somehow use a DPDT switch to swap between networks. Using just one side of an amplifier, or a mono amp. You could quickly swap between networks, to hear differences. A friend and I did this once with a 2A3 SET, and some large Mitsubishi amplifier...DX some such... We used one speaker with a switch to switch between amps. Once we had the volume levels set even between both amps, switching back and forth quickly showed no differences unless they were really subtle. One's (at least mine) audible memory isn't that quick to note subtle differences. YMMV. But when you take 2A3 amplifier or the Mitsubishi, and listen to one of them in your system for a week, and then switch to the other, one will or should notice the differences. I would guess that this the same for capacitor networks.

    Cap Question

    If you ask me with reference to what Derrick posted, it was more of an apples to banana comparison. You can definitely tell one from the other.

    You need a pair of Heresies for the top.

    Flip them over and there should be a access panel, with screws and a gasket.

    Heritage / HIP Inspired KI-362's?

    Were those originally ported subwoofer (or woofer) cabinets? I would think so...

    La Scala Modification Fact or Fiction?

    When you get to the search bar in the upper right hand corner, right click and select "all content". Then type in ported LaScala. I got 96 hits off the forums search bar.

    Do a search for "ported LaScala"

    Why? Dean mentioned Solens are junk, and I agree. He also mentioned Jantzen is entry-level cap, and I can agree there, maybe a teeny weeny bit better than Solen. I figured if your going to go sideways with caps, may as well use a cap with 1% tolerance. I mentioned to maybe try and use them. I meant no insult. Why aren't you butt-hurt at Dean for what he mentions?

    X11i ear buds, new $23/shipped Ebay

    Only feedback as a buyer, but the item shows 13 sold in the last couple days for 23 bucks. The person on the eBay account was one name until 2004, then changed to another after that.
