Default 2 for Michigan

On a state level, we've got 2 going for Michigan. How about the Italian states?

Quick results test one, Saturday - Caddocks in C13 sound more open and detailed when writing side faces the LM3886. Maybe even a little more low end.The other way narrows the stage and sounds compressed. At least that's what I'm getting.

Fine

In comparison with the metal film KOA is better or worse?

Don't know, I'll put them back in and listen before I move on to twirling R104/204.

Caddocks definitely sound cleaner. There is a bit more musicality with the KOAs but it's cloudy and smeared in comparison. IMHO a clear winner here... Mr.C

Thanks - For those who may be interested, I made a small four part test mix so I wouldn't loose acoustic memory over time.

1. Big Band - Monster kick drum, deep elect bass, prominent cymbal, stage and dynamics.

2. Elect piano that has the raggedness as mentioned earlier.

3. Same as #2 but acoustic piano.

4. Voice, bell, guitar and stage.

Zip file has both flac and wav - https://www.box.com/s/081ad14b36fd4e4bf894

In these days, after falling in love with them, I'm going to divorce...

I find them a bit 'grey', a bit lifeless.

I'm enjoing more carbon films and Susumus, but obiously it could change.

Let's see what happens in the next days.

In R104/R204 also I prefer KOA MF and now I'm testing Susumus.

All those shunt resistors are very difficult to select...

Apart R10, here Rikens are the best, followed by KOA SPR1.

Dario, Can you see me shaking my fist at you over there in Italy ?. I just broke off a socket - short delay.
