also pinnochio, you'll handle the auricaps yeah? the keratherm and zfoils is about as much as I can handle. I suspect there wont be that many interested in the vcap CuTF bypass caps? these will not be cheap, I can get some discount, but not a large one, I use auricap bypassed with CuTF, but thats a significant price, not even sure if i'm ready for it myself at this stage and I dont actually get any benefit from the discount, as I can get that any time

can we have a show of hands whos interested in the Vcap? since that probably wont be too many and there is no real work involved in adding them to the packages that shouldnt be a problem. the enclosures if we can make it over the line to get 10 or so, would be better handled by someone in Asia, as the shipping from here in Au would kill any discount and I dont have the time for that really.

Sure, I can handle both the Auricap XO and the Vcap CuTF. So on the list, please divide the caps in two categories : Caps - Auricap XO and Caps - Vcap CuTF for Bypass.

Thanks

pretty sure i'll still be able to beat your price on the VCAP, but if you could organize it as far as the li9st and whos keen, that would be cool. then once we have numbers we'll compare and see if its worth it once shipping to me is factored in. I'm due for a vhaudio order shortly anyway so if we can lump them together i'll split the shipping with the group

vcap are usually excluded from any discounts/sales at PCX as part of their distribution agreement, so not sure how that will work for you.

I'm still thinking about the Vcap. I've separated the sheet to know who's interested in them. We'll go with your pricing.

I was talking to a friend yesterday and he compared many caps to the Vcap CuTF that he has and according to him, sonically, the Mundorf Silver/Gold is extremely similar but requires more than 500 hours to break in properly.

Ciao!

hmm I didnt find the SGO to be that similar, nice caps but could never live with them for that long. besides i'm in favor of the CuTF also for the reason that its very easy then to keep a very consistent signal path, high quality copper/ptfe wire + high quality copper PTFE caps + high quality copper and ptfe dac board.

I mean I have some crystal cables piccolino mini coax hookup wire and some other upocc AgAu wire, but PCB tracks are not often consistent with this hehe (see being an ackodac my PCBs are also pure copper and ptfe with gold plate)

logical or not this works for me, I just dont really see much point in making one single part silver and gold.

its all cake anyway

Hi Qusp,

Not the SGO but just the SG. The ones with oil are much different. I never tried just the S/G but will do in a different project. I'll get the Vcap but at a later time.

BTW, your Avatar, is that the frog eating the cat or the opposite?

Ciao!

I vote the SG, it sounds great after break-in. The price also much lower than VCap.
