If you want to believe me, then maybe this is the sign telling you to sort the local decoupling?

It is either in the wrong place, or the wrong values, or the wrong cap types, or a combination there off.
Makes sense to me.

Why only Arcam?
If you agree that local decoupling is that important, then write to all manufacturers and tell them.

Interesting, i need to recap my two Linn Klout soon and the best will be these Mundorfs.
But i need 16 of them, 436 USD and Nichicon will cost only 60 USD. Yakes!
Original capacitors have LINN engraved in gold letters. Somebody wants to buy a kidney?

Do ESR measurements first before spending money on new caps.
Hard to tell about the current condition without measuring - unless they obviously leak.

Need Comment For Mundorf M-Lytic AG caps
check these caps.. http://www.alconelectronics.com/imag...PG-6DI_NEW.pdf

They have very similar specs of Mundorf and even the can looks very similar. When I used this the sound lost its attack. It was all smooth. I didnt understand why was this happening. Switched back to normal caps. The Alcon had good esr and esl ratings very close to Mundorf and now I am bit worried that even Mundorf sounds like alcon or do i need to use brighter sounding decoupling caps like either Muse or Cerafine?

I replaced Panasonic FM 2200uF/35v with Mundorf AG 4700uF/40v for pre-amplifier power cap. The sonic improvement is very obvious and very positive. Then, the power-amplifier's power cap were replaced from ELNA 10000uF/63v to Mundord AG 10000uF/63v. The sound quality keep the same good way, more richness, more 3D sensation, more silk-like and less hardness. Very good power cap!
