Output caps does make a difference in B1.I have replaced AXON true caps with cheap Russion K73-16 caps 12x 10uF 63V PETP K73 16 Capacitors | eBay
Believe me there is a great improvement in SQ.

Regards,
Sachin

When I go on the water, I wear Musto(&Hyde) clothing : hollow polypropylene fiber underwear, and breathing ptfe membrane outerwear.
Only downside is that a complete outfit costs several thousand dollars.

If you favor all-polyester at 75 cents/per, be my guest.
Believe me, if 9101 means Januari 1991, you live in the previous century.

Yes I do favour 75 cents/per Polyester over some expensive PP caps.Try it to believe it.There are also few threads here suggesting the same http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/parts...-one-best.html

If I were a believer, I'd walk barefoot and hit myself with a branch.
PET is PET, I only swallow that from a bottle.

Papa Pass himself suggested in B1 artical that Polyester would be just fine.They sounded better than AXON PP caps in my B1.

I worked as a QC/QA stiff on the first Coke PET-bottle production line here.
Seemed like the best next thing.
(in particular if one previously did the same at the end of a 150ft rolling "doormat" Glass line, at +40C )

Nowadays, one is lucky to get it in a glass bottle, and Classic Coke doesn't even taste classic to me.

The B1 sounds like the next best thing to you.
Me, I've built every possible buffer 20 years ago, from Burr Brown OPA dip8 ones to full discrete, as (balanced) line drivers.

You can do me a favor by sawing a Ruskie in half, and tell me what you see.
Mentioning that you enjoy Coke Classic in a PET bottle doesn't really cut it for me.
YMMV, regards.

Can you get the Made in Mexico Coca-Cola in Holland or (probably easier) Curacao? It's the real stuff -- Amazing!

Coke changed (for the worse) in the USA in 1984, and the Mexican Coke tastes like when I was a child.

Manufactured locally, at both locations (on the island, right next to the biggest supermarket).

(Camel cigarettes are manufactured under license locally as well. Difference between a 20-night stand with a 20-year old Raquel Welch, and a $20 chick with a stick)

Bummer. The Mexican stuff is really unique. Glass bottles as well.

Come to Burning Amp, it's available in the US with only a little searching.

You wish me to risk my life every year at BA, by flying over with Pèpè Gonzalez ?

Shopping at latino shops in Castro is fun, lots of nice items there to stuff in a flightcase.
With my shirt off, I likely wouldn't look suspicious at the Folsom street fair, if not for showing signs of arousal by various leather dikes.

(you should try driving up and down the Panamericana from panamÁ city, with a Puerto-Rican fool, a handgun between his legs, one under the seat, and another in the glove compartment)
