XO update 4

I just bypassed my RTX's by borrowing my brother's small Mundorf silver & oil Mcap's. It restored a lot of low-level detail & natural transient decay. The optimum value seems to be about 0.67uF. That made cymbals more naturally metallic without over-emphasizing sibilance or make it unnaturally sound metallic too.

However, there is a noticeable need for grill cloth to filter out 22kHz digital resonance. Otherwise, stripped naked Maggies are quite fatiguing.

My brother wanted to check the RTX's. So, he substituted a used Hovland 10uF MusiCap for the bulk capacitances. All the air was deflated even with a Mcap bypass.

PS: am still waiting for the 60uF AuriCap. In the interim, I found an old Solen 53uF to substitute for the stock electrolytic. The midbass has tightened & the result is more planar sound at the lower XO.

... just my 2¢
