Hi all

Not sure if you're aware but there is a nice explanation on all these mods and more on the Yaqin Facebook page.

However I still have the original china 12ax7 vacuum tubes attached.
Any recommendations to better ones.
Iīm mostly listening to heavy & death metal, so some which can handle the fast changing dynamics.

Also fixed the humming, itīs still there when you crank up the volume to 2/3 when music itīs not on. Is yours completely gone at max volume from main-amp?
By awesome, is it warmer, more transparent, better depth ??? I'm about to dive in but would like to hear some results...thanks!

Nice VID thanks for the tips..I'm in. I can tell by the sound of this MS I just got today it has potential. Mine doesn't have any hum itself but my Denon SUT does if I'm not careful how it's placed. Here we go

I would say the level of dynamics well defined bass and details have increased, dont know about transparency for me it's a weird word when it comes to music, what does it really mean in that?

What kind of caps are you planning to use for the replacements?

Clarity Caps, I've used them on a few preamps and they are very transparent and open, and by that I mean not veiled in any way. For the money I find they are hard to beat.
Here's what I did with the ground and the little bit of hum it had with my SUT is completely gone now

Ok which clarity caps are you using, and how have you done the hum thing, I'd it a cap soldered between the two ground wires and which have you used?

Default mixed caps

Ok so you have just placed one .1 uf cap between the two groundcables and the helps?nice

When you are using the ClarityCap ESA Series Film Capacitor are you planning on using 4 of the same.

I was thinking of maybe mixing two sets of capacitors eg the ESA and the MR Clarity caps so you have a set of two different ones per channel, any idea what that will do, i was thinking it would give a mix of different quialities as long as they are both 1.0 uF, but would that be a mess or just not work or contribute to anything?

Default clarity caps

which do you use btw 250 or 630 vdc.
And does it make a difference soundwise which one of these you use?
