Give the DAC a good 100 hours to fully open up. The blackgates continue to get better over 300 hrs. I leave mine on all the time and it is excellent.
Then drop Foobar and pair CPLAY & CMP to this DAC and you will be blown away. Very short USB also good.

Peter, it has been a couple of months and was wondering if you have anything to report on the "more serious project"

'All in all, I'm very content with that unit and I use it in my workshop for music, internet and video. I have another, more serious project coming up soon.'

Hi Samoloko,

I've never heard of real substitutes for Black Gates when it comes to electrolytic caps in coupling / decoupling applications. Further more, sound of caps really is a matter of personal taste. I would go for some nice film caps, MKP's or KP's.

If size matters, I would recommend to outsource the caps from the pcb completely. Then you have the possibility to try every cap you want.

I did the same in a recent project when I decided to use some russian military pio's, bypassed with a small film cap of same value. Very nice result, and much better than some ordinary electrolytics...

Regards - martin

If not BGs then Panasonic FC; some people also like BC Components caps, but I never tried them.

thx for very kind reply Martin
It has to be a electrolitic cap which has closer to BG N sound
I don't have much practice thats why I ask

Ok, then perhaps this test might show you some alternatives:

There is also something said about some Panasonics and Nichicons.

Happy reading ;-)

have you think what you would use for a replacement of BGs
after all they are not In production
why do you like pana FC more than FM
also what you think about nichicon and rubycon for couple / decouple

I expressed my views on capacitors here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...431#post574431

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...230#post581230

I've been using Panasonic FC for many years and don't plan replacing them with anything else. BGs were fine, but only for limited production of certain amp models. I still keep substantial stock of Black Gates for future needs (to be used in actual products only and not sold for parts).

And why would I like FM if FC work fine for me?

The only other caps I would be interested to try out are already mentioned BC Components (used originally in Gaincard)
