Default DC Servo or output cap SOUND QUALITY

Hi All

I'm putting this out there just to get some guidance/opinions.

I am near the final stages of a diy line stage based around a JE990 opamp using BC550 etc (easy to get trannies).

I would like some of you to shed some light on the pros/cons of a DC Servo. Some say it sounds worse than a good quality output cap.

When I imagine it, the output cap senario 'looks' worse as the signal has to fight/pass through layers of film (looks more like a transformer) whereas with the DC servo 'ALL' of the signal is present at the output along with a tiny amount of '????' which was squirted into the other input.

Which is the worse senario OR maybe easier to answer - which sounds better.

thanks all

Confused of London
