this Forum is all about brain and fun - how to have most fun with most brain and least money involved ........ in most cases not because something is super expensive and one can't afford it , but for brain sake
For many years. At very least.. We had been recaping, replacing residtors in std audio equipment which is already legendary. We thought seriously wow there is an improvement using boutique parts. Until the exact same original is also compared AB. Again and again and again.

Audiopooh... More harm than good.. It get to a point we know what we are doing.

For that same reason.. I try to stick to the main bom as a general guide lol. And be patient letting it settle down.

ZM Your writing about me do not match any facts in my life.

Understand my message was totally opposite to such attitude.
I repeat: If Diyer search for components in the hope of better audio quality than is more logical find the ones with desirable specifications guarantees by official industrial company (frequently at moderate prices) from Mouser, Digi-Key distributors etc. and avoid unknown stuff without serious datasheet

I'm impressed anybody can get those large poly caps (including large poly bypasses) on that tiny board. That's dedication to the cause. I had trouble with my orange drop polys.

My B1 Korg has worked without blowing up for many months now, sounds wonderful, and I am afraid to touch it any more for fear of pending desecration at my hands.

There must be a saying in audio-land that goes something like: Got it working and sounding great. What next? Keep screwing with it until it is screwed up and start over.

I may play with the bias when I have some time free but just left it at the standard 9.5 twist and am happy with that.

EEVblog is "spot on"...….but as long as the cable companies can fool people to buy their expensive cables…….it will be stupid not to do it.....

Try to look at what cables are used during recording, mixing etc.....just normal good quality un-expensive professional cables…….with good connectors.

Wakoo Frenchie understood my writing exactly opposite of intended meaning

what I said is - you certainly did investigate various options during entire span of your DIY activity....... and we all were , in one point of time , led to investigate what Boutique parts are bringing to the table ....... and - judging by last posts you wrote here , you engaged your brain , and decided what's best for you , not being blinded by pretty popular Doctrine that more expensive must be better

"Sometimes there are situations where explanations and measurings simply don't explain enough why this or that sound better. Sometimes some explanations pretend that this or that sound good - but we know that it does not sound good. Here we are in moving sands territory. It is an art to perceive the frontier between objectivity and subjectivity. Subjectivity must begin when objectivity reach it's limits"

"Today's subjectivity is tomorrow's objectivity."

"Real hifi is brain and heart. Sometimes the brain is ahead, sometimes is the heart, but in the end it is the heart that certificates, because music must be created. The brain serves the heart, the master."

imagine every possible trap/mistake of regular audiophile

then try to imagine every possible trap/mistake of regular audiophile going to DIY

I fell victim on each of these ........ once , then twice , then trice

I must be 600 yrs old

then remember what Pa is often saying - "this is entertainment , not dialysis "

moral of the story - be wakoo , be happy

I look forward to a long future of further audio foolishness and gullibility. That's entertainment!

When I'm soldering I'm in a wakko mood. I like to snif the smoke of solder. (Please avoid it!)
