It looks great! I like the color effect with the dampeners. :)

Deb,

Let us know how you get the Clarity MR's to fit.

I have the same caps and haven't figured out how to get them to fit.

Do you have the 400V version or the 630V version.  The 400V are smaller but I am still unsure how I will get them to fit.

Deb,

I bought the 400volt. Just shorter, same diameter as 630 volt. I could have picked something smaller.... Wanted to hear the MR's though.

I will post if I come up with a good idea for fixing them in place. Maybe some JB Weld and a piece of PVC to make a 'cradle'.

I am not adding Bee Quiet, but have a tall stepped attenuator in the way.

I think the V-cap OIMP will fit reasonably well in the allotted space.  When I can snag a BeePre for my system, I will pick up a pair and post results.

I have the 400v as well, not sure how I will fit them.

I have the 630V version in my Paramounts and they as very transparent.  I like them a lot

Aaron,

It opens for me.  It is Deb's trademark purple base and copper hammertone Rustoleum top plate.  Nice work!  Very tidy! 

What's the new board?

Installed the BeeQuiet and upgraded the caps to ClarityCap MR 10uf 400V.  Pictures below
I am sure it is a combination of both upgrades, but WOW does it sound great.  Clarity, and detail is vastly improved from the stock configuration, very immersive sound stage, and the caps have not had any time to open up yet.  I am impressed, it blows my Extended Foreplay III out of the water.
Bottlehead, what an incredible preamp you came up with, I couldn't be happier!!!!

Thanks
Debra

Wow that is audio porn! Great knobs! It's obvious from your experience that I have to get one!
