Auricap XO Capacitors Testimonial, December 2014

AURICAPXO

After maybe 30 hours of musical burn-in, your Auricaps 10uf are truly fantastic! I tried the 1uF XO but finally I easily kept the 1uf Aura-t on my tweeters … Not really astonishing :–)) but the 10uF XOs has replaced with success a well known and highly regarded stacked copper capacitor. I can’t imagine what a 10 uF Aura-t would be capable to do…Just a dream, sad…Nevermind, the Xos are nice too. You know, I still like very much my stacked cast caps but in my current speaker system and also in my Naim amp, your Aura-t and XOs work clearly better for my wife and me, without any doubt and for 30 years, I tried so many high end caps…but never yours till today. Your caps are highly performing and I appreciate over all, their neutrality and their transparency. We can listen every kind of musics from jazz to death metal. (from Jazz at the pawnshop (1976) to Nile today !) I thought that metal music recordings were often very harsh but the Aura-t and also the XOs are able to reproduce the complex textures and amplitude nuances from a saturated guitar without any simplification, the result is a precise, detailled and quite soft timbre for this kind of music (of course) but no shouty sound.Metal with its high compression rate is a difficult challenge for caps and transducers but your aura-T and Xo can easily do it … Today, I am 50 years old and my favourite music is most of time classical, barocco and jazz but sometimes I still like listen to metal and my system today can be as good with these different style of music.
