I'm new here and am looking to upgrade my Musical Fidelity X10D with Jupiter Copper Foil Paper and Wax capacitors.
I have already purchased the items and should arrive in a couple of days, but I noticed the following on the retailers site with regards to the capacitors;
"The line on the label indicates the outermost foil, and should
be connected to the lowest impedance path to ground."
This means that the capacitors have to be installed in a certain direction to take advantage of the outer foil and the benefits it brings. Does anyone know what direction that I should install the capacitors on the circuit board? I know the impedence is higher in the input side and lower on the output according to what I have read about the X10D.
Hi tazzo, Mike, Pink Floyd, is the one to answer this for you, but on another forum there is some scepticism about the benefit of this theory. Some say so long as all the caps are the same way round it’ll not make any difference. I suppose you make your own choice Not so with electrolytics of course
I bought the x10 circuit board from eBay and used my own chassis with a transformer so there is plenty of room. I'm no expert but the sound has improved considerably and I have not fully burned them in yet. I read a lot of good things about the Jupiters so just had to try them. Expensive, yes, but they sound superb. I hope you recover well.
