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.

“I really like this new series of parts from Audience. They offer a refreshing update to an old reliable. Everything we care about in the music is better. The 3D recovery is more abundant, the clarity of fine details is improved. The bass is strong and smooth, not over-emphasized or woolly-warm like some other parts. The highs are sweet and not fatiguing. I like them, especially at the modest price”.

“The caps in my Les Paul provided smoother highs and a more detailed midrange response. ”

No room at CES this year sounded better than the Audience set up. No room sounded as sonically accurate, as emotionally and aesthetically beguiling, as musically truthful and flat out startling with dynamic rightness of weight and timbre—as melodically, angelically charismatic.
Paired with the $7000 ClairAudient 12 subwoofer, this system was able to produce some of the most glorious midrange I’ve ever heard. Space was reach-out-and-touch real, micro dynamic events were breath taking, and the overall tonal balance was scary.
