I have come across with this provider before but I never actually used it.

I connected the shield of both R-Core Tx to chassis more body, lows, highs, it's incredible the big improvement.

Ricardo & Nick C3 now 15.33nF

That's the correct way. Electrostatic shield goes to IEC ground prong and from there with a short cable to chassis.

I see both as recommended types for highest quality audio.
The parallel combination may give a synergistic boost to the audio performance of the 15n33F capacitance.

FT-1 15,3nF is a real improvement over the previous SM, but I am having some trouble... After the mod, left channel has more hiss than right channel (There is a difference of 9pF between the FT-1) can this be the reason ?
