    I received my SEG back from Stan with the Supercap upgrade and found the sound quality, out of the box dull and lifeless. It took about five days to really sound better but it was worth the wait. Bass noted are not deeper but there is more bite or attack to the presentation. Greater sense of 'being there'. A nice improvement.

    It does take a few days for the supercaps to burn in, especially since they are composed of a solid dielectric. The bass will improve in depth in another few days, assuming that your speakers can go deeper...

    Hope not-floorstanding transmission line speakers have more than enough bass as it is.

    It's very useful with DVD audio tracks, which go lower than the 20Hz audio tracks. The Jurasic Park movies are good examples, as well as Transformers, Despicable Me, etc.

    Stan,
    Your observations on bass using a revised SEG are confirmed. I have quite a few Blu ray music /video concert discs and I've had to adjust my REL bass speakers slightly because the bass output appears to be stronger. More testing / listening required. Lucky to have the 15volt option on my power supply.
    Regards,
    T.
