you are doing a great job, keep experimenting with those caps. I am gonna have another look at the schematics and follow those power supply caps and the surface mount regulators as my next target. I changed surface mount voltage regs on my DAC for 317's and got excellent results.

Honestly, when I read such reports on juggling with caps and wasting time on completely hopeless efforts, the only thing I can say is: I feel sorry...
Did you already forget your own reports and countless times you've been changing caps yourself? Maybe you should rather say: "I learned my lesson" and let others learn theirs at their own pace.

This is one of the few threads where there is no "Condemnation without Examination" and lets keep it this way.

As to reference the measurements I've done:

am I correct in hooking up this way. I really not sure about the green and white wire:

Might i add also to BRGDS's comments that i fortuitously changed a couple of the caps in the power supply line and got very positive results which has driven me to look harder. I will repeat that cap change and post photos if i get the same very positive audible results again.

Waste of time??? I dont think so, but can get expensive experimenting.

I have now got my puck with two layers one of aluminium and rubber and another of ebony. The combination is the best yet for my set up. Not as overpowering in the upper bass as the ebony was but neither leaner sounding as the aluminium was. A great in between sound.

But i guess supporting structures for the transport will have a lot of say in the final effects retrieved from the many different pucks made for each of us.

No, I’ll never forget hundreds of hours I spent working on clones with iron and box of caps, listening sessions with my friends, hectoliters of beer drunk, ups and downs, strange comments from my family members. Not counting 7 boomboxes used. That was really funny.
However from time perspective I must say that was blind alley and waste of time.
And yes, maybe I should say: my lesson learned is: there are no miracles when you deal with 20MHz circuits, no miraculous caps even those red ones , and what really counts here and brings best results is regular engineering based on understanding of how this black box works inside.

I couldn't agree more!
