  • Cap replacement in Virtue amp

    A little teaser. I ordered standard caps in a Virtue Two.2 and replaced them with sonicap gen I with gen II bypass caps. Really cramped quarters in there, but didn't take to long. I had to insulate the sonicap leads because it is way to tight in there to leave them uninsulated. I will be comparing it to the classic Two with auricaps and then will add bypass caps to the classic Two to see what kind of a difference that makes. Going on vacation so don't expect anymore updates this week. :)

        Sorry tesseract, back from vacation and got the Two.2 in my main system and breaking in. Initial impression is that the sonicaps definitely don't suck. :D

          Forgot to update this thread.
          The sonicaps sound great. I like both the sonicaps and the auricaps. The auricaps have some coloration, whereas the sonicaps just sound neutral. The sonicaps with bypass caps are also slightly cleaner. I am going to bypass the auricaps with Gen II bypass caps to see if the edge in cleanliness is because of the bypass caps.
