Do These Caps Make My Amp Look Big?
« on: November 02, 2020, 07:52:31 AM »
I've been enjoying listening to my Crack-a-two-a in its stock form for the past few months, save for the installation of some very nice tubes.  I purchased a pair of Clarity caps around the time I finished building the amp and just got around to fitting them.  It was necessary to reposition a couple of terminal strips and resistors, lengthen/shorten a couple of wires and fabricate some mounting blocks.  Here’s the finished product.  Tested it out.  All seems good.  I’ll do some critical listening later.  Don't yet know what the net effect will be, but I'm pleased and don't plan to do anything else to the amp.

Joe.

Nah, they look perfectly proportional -- with room to grow, even.

Hah! Famous first words. I've said numerous times about each of my BH amps. But perhaps you have more sense and greater self restraint than me.

Congrats on a fine looking, and I'm sure fine sounding, amp!

cheers, Derek

Can you share your impressions of the CSAs in the C2A?  I used them in the Mainline for a while and really liked them.
