Default Mundorf Silver-in-Oil Capacitors

After knowing the Mundorf capacitor for some time, I finally decieded to purchase few for trial last week. I received them last night. I had it replace the Jensen 0.1uF paper in oil coupling capacitor in my Monarchy M22B DAC.

When the music is on, I was amazed how open and brilliant it sounds. It has much more detailed sounds compared to Jensen.

May be this is my first impression but I am rather surpurised how the coupling capacitor could make such big difference.

I think that Mundorf are just rebadged SCR capacitors?

SCR caps are MKP not Silver-in-Oil

Yes, I was rather excited to find out how much differences it made by changing the capacitor in the DAC. Therefore, I posted it in two different forums.
