Coupling Caps for Aikido ACF Buffer


2006-10-10 8:44 pm
which input/output coupling caps would you use for the Aikido ACF buffer?

I wanted try the Obbligatto Copper caps, their description says warm.
They also have the Premium caps for a few bucks more.

I will be using 6DJ8 tubes so not sure if I should be getting 'warm' sounding caps.

caps I'm using now are russian k42y's and bypassing them with the teflon KT3's. not sure about these yet. I've read mixed reviews on the KT3 teflons, some say they don't break in or they break in really quick, or they don't lose their charge.
