My audiobuddy came over and we compared elco's and caps in my pre.....
The Blackgate came out as a winner so we where quite busy with other audio...



 


We compared....Sun Audio Blackgate Tong Feng General Electric Elna Cerafine Mundorf Duelund...

We had to top my JJ cap (biggest bang for the buck 12 dollar)......in that specific position only Blackgate maneged to do so...so that stayed in... 8)

Off topic but I keep you informed

My brown base Osram U52 - blessed by the God himself in a church where one of the best violinist performed the best Paganini performance I've ever seen, absolutely MUSICAL bliss! Now I know why some U52 is not as musical as the other, remember people, the brown base is blessed! ;D
