    Definitely. Ears are the most reliable tools. Reviews, opinions and specs can only tell you so much.

    Ferociously testing multiple types of Capacitors for the next incarnation of the FB-OTP and the upgrade pack.

    Ive had to buy a headphone amp to please the Wife. Listening to the same song 10 times in a row does get on peoples nerves lol. Seems that the most expensive capacitors aren't always the best sounding!!

    Its amazing how different they all sound.

    Next: Opamps

    More to follow!

    Make sure you give each type a decent time to not just burn in but for your ears to adjust. I went through lots when I was making my own cross overs. I eventually went for a combination which I never thought I would do. Combinations also set a different playing field so try and do it methodically. I'm sure you are though 😁

    Thats a good shout, Josie. I am looking for further option as there are many to look at. Thankfully, someone informed me of some other to try so they will be on the purchase list soon!
