    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

silver capacitors

    i have built 2 Kondo M7 preamp clones. One with normal resistors/audio note capacitors, the other with tantalum and Vcap copper. The sound of the AN cap is all mid band, the second is even handed. I did not try AN silver or Duelund silver. Has anyone tried these two types of caps? They are very expensive so it's not something that it guess one can try and return if they don't sound good!

    i have heard the real Kondo. Very detailed and involving but funny enough, i am not convinced that it is tonally correct. The copper caps are more correct tonally.

    As many on here will tell you (although some will argue the toss!) it is all room / system / ears / taste / recording dependent. V-caps are serious money! For myself, if it sounds right, it is right and that is all that matters TBH. This is a good read: http://www.humblehomemadehifi.com/Cap.html
