RE: Russian K40y9 input coupling caps - first impressiond

But yes, I will have to let things settle down.
The sound is still changing, I can actually hear it change: I already réajusted the relative volume of this amp with the volume of the bass amp, twice. Ever so slightly, but I had to adjust it twice: first lower it, then put it slightly higher again, then lower it again.
The burn-in of these caps seems to be quite rocky and roller-coasterish but the nice qualities remain throughout. I'm sure it will turn out fine (I remember, when I fully recapped my preamp with SilmicII caps, the sound became so dull after a few hours that I was almost sure I broke something, and it took another 100 hours to open up completely again... hard days ^^)

By the way, I had previously swapped the Nippon Chemicon reservoir caps with bigger (2200uF) Nichicon FG caps and it was a step back. I left them is for months but somehow the sound was sluggish and flat. I put the old caps back in and miracle, good sound was back!
