Any reason why you chose that value for the teflon bypass to the OIMP? Also, did you install both the OIMP and teflon bypass together or at separate times. How long was the break-in period for you before things really sounded great. Thanks for your input.
I chose the value for the bypasses to allow the majority of the midrange and upper octaves to pass through the 600V VH Audio TFTF Teflon capacitors. These capacitors are unbelievable! The only issue is... break in time! They sound good right out of the box, but it takes them 300-400 hours to peak in sound, and once they get there, oh boy, hang on to your socks. You will absolutely hear things in recordings that you will swear were never there before, and the grain and glare (especially on digital) is mostly eliminated. These capacitors are all about music... but music with detail. I have tried the TRT Dynamicaps, Hovland caps, Multicaps, Rel Caps, Auricaps, Kimber Kaps, etc. You name it, I have listened to it in my quest for excellence in sound. The VH Audio TFTF caps (when broken in) reveal the limitations inherent in the other capacitors. I know that they are expensive, but after they are fully broken in, you will declare them an absolute bargain... trust me on this.
I've been using Mundorf Silver in Oil as output cap of my Consonance Ref 2.2 tube CDP and very satisfied with the results.
Now, I'm planning to replace the CJ Polystyrene coupling caps (0.15uf) of my Conrad Johnson amp ... I am contemplating since VH OIMP caps are more than double the price of Mundorf SIO. Is CJ Polystyrene good enough or should i go with the Mundorf or VH cap. Would appreciate if anybody had an experience on upgrading their CJ gears.
