Excellent caps, I highly recommend them.

Output coupling cap choices tend to be kind of personal to flavor and quickly go heavy on the dollar.

I've said all along we are going to have a decent output cap (and all parts) that will work and sound excellent. It's to mate with the CF amp in particular, though any amp should be fine. Trying to hold the line to reasonable on the Linestage in general, I picked a economical Clarity Cap that should not shame what we're trying to do.

But I've also said all along that you may well want to up the game on that cap, to fulfill your hearts every desire.

But even then, it's not too bad an idea to listen a little first before changing to your flavor. It'll help you recognize your choices strengths and help you know if you're home or if you still want to try others.

So I'd encourage choices, like the Obligatto, for those intending to experiment in that way. It's a top drawer choice for sure.

The idea of the Linestage is to be very solid sonically, not that with enough money you can't improve. And we'll all be interested I hope in what does seem to work particularly well.

Got mine already. I've used them in speakers, my CF amp mods, I have a set for my 5687 pre build and a set for this pre. Great caps!

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Unfortunately the Obligatto's that I had ordered did not arrive in time for the fest,,I have 4 3.3uF caps that I had ordered for others,,,,so with that said,,I have 4 for sale@ $ 40.00 per pair shipped.

Please note,,, Al and Brian T have right of first refusal !

Please post here if you are interested.

Thanks for looking.
