Possible substandard caps in my SMSL Sanskrit 10th MkII
#1
I posted a picture of the internals of my MkII on the ASR forum. Today I received a reply that my unit has standard Panasonic CE caps, and his MkII has audio grade Nichicon gold FW caps. In the SMSL ad they describe "audio-specific capacitors" and "Fever-grade ingredients!". Purchased mine from the US Amazon SMSL Factory Store. I took the picture of mine and posted it, because I just don't trust these companies. Will dig a little more. To think it could sound even better?
