Hi,
Merlin,
You prefer the Obligatos over the Auricaps, can you explain/elaborate.
I was thinking about getting auricaps for the output.
Thanks
Pete

Hi psgr,

All depends what are you looking for, if you are looking for a warm/round sound without lost a lot of definition your election must be Auricaps or if you are looking for more resolution I will choose Obbligato's, that's are mine subjective opinion & of course all depends the system and your personal taste.

Both are very good caps at a very reasonable prices & worth the penny.

If possible try with the maximum voltage possible because subjectively there is a lot of difference of quality with more voltage.

Best,
Felipe

Of course, in the cart load & in the RIAA, if you can afford use it minimum in the signal way or critic places.

You get more harmonics due to the low noise: transparent / clear sound, the bass more defined never lost & deep, the mids incredibles it' impossible hear more things & the highs simply perfects.

Versus Shinkoh the difference is that the mids & mids/bass are not inflated but with body, the bass is more controlled & deep, the highs aren't liquids like the Shinkoh but have more air or atmosphere for me are more real, is really difficult to express all in words.

From Michael Percy Audio, but you have to ask for ultra low TCR "nude" Z-foil TX2575 0.01% tolerance.

They tie with the first stage load resistor. So each schematic has its adequate one. Use the value on the schematic you build.
