RE: Russian K40y9 input coupling caps - first impressiond

It has been postulated by Tom E, unless I am misinterpreting, that the K40 caps are filtering "unwanted" bass frequencies. KanedaK, do you hear a rolled off bass from the K40's compared to the Arcotronics. This comment, on the surface, seems bizarre to me. That just changing the cap would get rid of "unwanted" low frequencies. What is an unwanted low frequency? Once again I may be missing something. If I am maybe you can ask Tom E for an explanation. All I saw in your post is the one cap change. So even if the cap got rid of "unwanted" low frequencies it would still be because of the cap. Not unlikely that a better cap would improve the bass.
