Enjoy the Music Review of Aura-T Capacitors

“…Well, now the Aura-T joins the VH Teflon in the electrostat flavor. These caps set themselves apart from the others by having an almost impossibly ethereal, pure, and extended top-end with endless decay like only a good electrostat can…..”

10 Audio Review of Aura-T Capacitors

10audio

“The Aura-T capacitors will never be replaced! These are exotic dancers of the Kingdom of Audio, removing well-known veils to enable the listener to hear far deeper into every note than was ever possible, even compared to the exceptionally transparent Placette Passive Line Stage. The improvements are noticeable throughout the frequency range, but especially in the upper midrange and treble where a higher level of information has been revealed. Voices are more present in the room. Percussion instruments have a “striking” immediacy that obviously narrows the differences between live and recorded music.”

Soundstage Review for Auricap Capacitors June 2004

soundstage
“The Auricapped 21A sounds fundamentally neutral, but its presentation has notable bloom and, as with the very best tube preamps, the ability to portray space — around performers and as an entity itself. Its sound is spacious. There is no tubey glaze, but also no etch or edge. Instead, there is clarity, vigor, and grace. Nobody will say the 21A is laid-back, but it doesn’t sound forward either. It walks the line of perspective as few preamps do, tipping neither one way nor the other. Its performance is accomplished — very detailed and very enjoyable.”

“I liked the UltraVerve preamplifier, and I really liked the upgraded unit. It is detailed but musical. The Auricap upgrade is a very worthwhile move in the direction of music for minimal cost.”
Francisco Duran – Mar ’04  Read Full Review

“The Auricaps are great parts, and represent a significant step forward in capacitor technology and audio-musical performance… Better and cheaper. What more can you ask for?”

HiFi Magazine 2001 and 2003 Reviews for Auricap Capacitors

hifimagazine
“..replacing the caps in the preamp signal path with Auricaps can lead to nothing but a distinct improvement in the presentation.”
Scott Faller – Mar ’03  Read Full Review

“But if you want absolute transparency without the paper in oil coloration, then you must give Auricaps a try. Auricaps are very neutral, uncolored, and smooth capacitors; they are also really fast. They are presented in an attractive build, sport the best measures in class, are available in a rather large number of values and are rather cheap if compared with the other audio-grade capacitors.”

HiFi Nirvana Review for Auricap Capacitors

msnbc
“It will cost you less than $50 for the parts, and will add about $1,000 of refinement to the sound quality of the entire system. Voices and instruments sound more real, enhancing the “you are there” sensation. I can’t stress to you what a huge difference these little parts make.”
