Stefanoo,

Count me in for one stereo set. I have used V-Caps for several years now and agree with you and others on their excellent performance.

SIO are indeed very fine capacitors.
I found their presentation to be very smooth and yet pretty detailed.
For their price I think they are pretty worth their money If you are looking specifically for a specific sonic signature.
However the CuTFT they keep the body of the SIO but they add extension to the top and articulation to the bottom.
The music flows much easier and with more power.
Plus they are much more neutral letting you enjoy more what was recorded on the master.
Obviously the premium vcap is more expensive but you get what you pay for in this case.
Hope this helps.

Sorry to butt in here where I have no business, but perhaps I can contribute something to the discussion.

I have used the Mundorf SIO cap in line level circuit and speaker xover. To my ears and in my system, they are excellent for tweeter xover only, perhaps midrange. They provide exquisite detail and layering of high frequencies, but bass is deficient. They are not so good at producing low frequencies, but they might be the best at high frequencies.

Now I am using film/foil caps with copper foil for amp input DC blocking, and they are the best of all I have heard. They are not CuTf, but copper foil and polypro made in Europe, not distributed in USA. They are superb at everything: detail, smoothness, depth, spaciousness, tonality, bass, midrange, highs, blah blah blah. I can imagine that with teflon instead of polypro, sound will be slightly smoother, perhaps even more resolving yet not brighter. You guys who can afford it should participate in this group buy. If I had the money, I would. Better caps can transform a good system to a great one. Copper foil is the best you can get, and worth every penny.

Peace,
Tom E

I fully agree with you about the SIO and the copper foil mixed with Teflon.
Thanks for your comment.

ok,

here we are....really close.....however some of the users haven't confirmed yet so we could have bad surprise at the end.
The plan is: when we hit 50 I will close the Groupbuy, send the request to V-Cap and he will open up a link to prepay and that will be the moment of the truth to see whether everybody will pull through with this or not.

Please check the list and let me know if I missed something.

Thanks.
