I meant sonic signature... these auricaps are very distinct from other caps... they have a special sound of their own.

Manufacturer argue are not inductive. Inductive sounds more thin in cables, as you know cables & caps are very similar.

RC...do you play music??....do you sing (other than in Kala OK)??

When you answer yes to both of questions above.....then I will take your post very seriously....

Enjoy the music (too bad...it is almost impossible to define music in words).....

Hi Merlin

I really like styrenes on tin foil, but I also like micas and other stuff... Teflon is really my prefered dielectric but as you know not all teflon caps are top notch.

I use the auricaps to "tune" some of my shunts because they have that "special" inbuilt "loudness" effect, but I prefer less "effective" caps in the signal path

I like also styrenes, how you say the best way is to use the caps in the best position for your target sound.

Example, for BiB in Analog I/V I use Auricaps to avoid the thin & harsh sound of digital. For SSHV2 I use as Vref Solen or old Wonder TRT now called Dynamicap both have thin sound & air sound not like styrenes but very good for tubes.

I prefer air like teflon but only reach very small values, remeber the best cap is no cap.

Ricardo I wish you Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

I ask because a lots of people talks about music from a much abstract opinion...without or before having a very close relationship with music....
