What about Silmic II? Some also like them terminating the regs at the 100uF positions.

You will see in your system contex what will fit you best after familiar enough with the buffer added I guess. Keep a choices arsenal, but its always safe to start with tips of those who have been there before. I preferred BGNX to cerafine when they were available, but alas, now its an irrelevant tip.

IMHO, Silmics II adds reverbs that are not present on signal.

Since in my system a buffer isn't strictly necessary, I've checked againt a simple SMD stepped attenuator (identical to the one used on the DCB1).

I do agree, in fact I'm using Black Gate STD and PKs on leds, second best were Cerafines.

Yes, the higher grade Nichicon KZ (they were the first caps mounted) and they sound very good too (full and pleasant) but in the long term they sound somewhat confused Vs other caps.

I've had the same feeling in every place I've used them...

I've recently tried also the green bipolar ones in the DCB1, too much warm.

Took the plunge and am waiting for my full kit with black PCB from TB. I'm going to try the vishay foils (TX2575) I want 4 for the 220R values, should I get more for any other position on the board?

Thanks,

Greg
