Means, if you feed the cap a signal from a sinus generator that's 1/10th of that frequency, you'd see an amplitude on the output that's 10dB smaller if the cap is 5pF.
If you use two known caps of different value, you can precisely figure out the stray capacitance of the board.

(stuff i had poly-u classes in, both math classes and audio amp electronics, so please don't see me as some wise-guy jinni)
Thank-you for describing the technique in detail. I knew what you meant be "in situ" I just wasnt following on the "how to" of it. I'll have to wait until I have a little more equipment to pull that off. All in good time.

Thanks again,

Russellc

F=1/(2xPixRxC)=1/(2xPix1000000x0,000000000005)=31830=31K830Hz

pF times a Million is 1/Million, so 1 divided by (5pF *1M) is 1/5th times a Million, is 200,000
200,000 divided by 2*3 is 33,333
3 is 4-2/3 % off for a rounded off pi of 3.14
Makes 31.847Hz, so the real corner frequency is ~31.847Hz or ~31,847 for the US.

I just got back from the coast, and I checked to confirm that
concurrent with the new price it will be 6 matched parts per board.

Is there an option for the early purchasers, that were sent 4 per board, to get the needed 2 more matched sets.

Yes, I wasn't looking for freebees, but would like to purchase the matched pairs we would need.

exactly. The deal was what it was, I would have to purchase them anyway.
I just dont want to have to buy a bunch of them, learn to match them, obtain what I need and match them, if I can just purchase them. Hardly a reason to declare a "perfect world" unless someones's world is WAY messed up. Its only a component. I've had the ZEN aand Bride of Zen for over 10 years with out building them, I'm sure this can wait without anyone's world not being perfect.

Otherwise, how are these dudes matched? If its doable for me, I'll match a load of them. Now, everythings perfect again!

I'll call and see what the dealio is at Pass Labs.
