Reminder, each version and idss has slightly different needs-initial value. Plus its a system, preference, capacitor measurement, capacitor tone, capacitor tolerance, thing.

Yes, I know that but I would like to see if there are similarities between several builds.

Those are different versions with different initial values, not just different builds.

If you can afford 35$00 USD for RIAA mid-bass try metallized teflon film SCR Solen 0.047uF 1000VDC are 5%, I bought matched pairs here:

Merlin, I may look into those at some point. How close to the stated value were they when you recieved them?

Had a little time to play. Started off the evening listening to it as I had left it last night. My opinion was still the same so I deceided to add the 250pF cap accross C3. The first measurement shows represents what the impact was. I could not really see a change, but I listened to it. I noted a small reduction in the extreme high end, it was a little better. I gave it a couple of sides of albums and decided to kick it up another notch. THis time I replaced the 15nF polystyrene cap with a 15.1nF poystyrene cap. so basically in total I have added 350pF or so to C3. The measurment is the second plot. Again not a huge change in the measurement. I have been listening to it ever since. At this point I don't want to change it again for another couple of days as the cap breaks in. Went back over some of the same albums and my initial perception is that the mids are more pronounced. Still great detail and stage.

In a nutshell, I can't measure the change, but it has changed perceptively. It will be interesting to see if my impression stays the same tomorrow. I wonder how much is me wanting a change.

For somereason I can't upload the graphs right now. will try later.

I saved them ib bmp format. Here is the last in jpg format.

In simulation it would give a 0.1-0.2dB overall trend above 1kHz. There it shows. With pink noise and cards its difficult. I see easier such differences if I watch with 1/96 oct. but there will be no lows to see, they shrink bandwidth with such an octave resolution. Now its subjectively tamer maybe you can feel the lower notes progressing better.

P.S. Textbook Riaa at 50Hz=16.95dB, 40Hz=17.79dB, 30Hz=18.59dB, 20Hz=-19.27dB, 5kHz=-8.21dB, 10kHz=-13.73dB, 20kHz=-19.63dB. I.e. your graph looks good I think.

Audio Tester uses a sweep not pink noise. But you are correct it is hard to see.
I will give it a couple of days before I final judge. Too easy to convince myself anything I want this early.

Sinusoidal sweep can be better. Depends on how it connects the gaps. But your sweep looks great VS theory.
