Now thin sound, very clear, of course need's more break-in to open the highs & go down the lows. It's like I supposed very similar sound to Hovland aluminium film & foil.

What did you have before ?

They will open up and give very good bass in the end.

Auricap 3.3uF 450VDC, don't worry Ricardo now is sounding each time better, are really fast & little by little will be open.

It seems to me after Merlin's reports on film caps and regs that in his system mostly ''rounder'' capacitors work better for him. I am suspecting his speakers and acoustics being the arbitrary decisive link. Was listening to double mono 1.2 full plastic caps regs just yesterday on the phono, and the tone is so clean, resolute and melodic in the same time. I wouldn't dare to recommend Ampohm paper in oil or Mylar in oil, under extinction and so huge, or Jupiter Wax, because such experiments are expensive, and without witnessing a system we can't really know more. I trust Merlin is experienced and knows his tastes so he decides his voicing best. By the way, he has gone a long road from his first frustrating attempts fast, and he makes now remote sensed regs without assistance, silent phono stage, tunes voicing, we must congratulate his dedication.

I agree.

This riaa really can be tuned just by a judicious choice of caps.... And it depends on the system also

All film caps test was using headphones HD600 not the speakers, I know perfectly mine speakers sound, if I will use the phono RIAA only with the headphones surely Obbligato's would be mine first choice, but Wilson Cub is another history: sounds more directly & not forgiven any kind of harsness & tell us how is bad or good for the speakers, I know also that I have acoustic node problems between 150Hz-200Hz as usually everybody has, but with headphones not matter.

N.B. every hour Obbligato's are sounding better
