Today for some reason it's been stable and great to listen to...I guess it's been reading my posts and fears for its life
then it could be your interconnects

It is all a matter of taste!

The Clarity Caps PWA type Nelson shows, are a good choice, one of my friends was still more enchanted by the ESA types of Clarity Caps. ........endless game!

I’m the mentioned friend of generg.

Yes I use the Clarity Caps PWA in the BA3 and BBA3, after comparing different PP-foil caps.
The PWA is on my opinion one of the best values for money in NP-designs.
The ESA types are still my favorites due to a bit more punch in the bass and slightly smother trebles, but due to space limitation on the board I decided to use the PWA and I don’t regret it.

Mmm, a 50 buck ClarityCap DTAC screw-you foil capacitor or an ICW PW of a few dolares, difficult choice.

(or maybe 1,1x )
