Re: New Computer Problems - HELP!

Are you any the wiser now Chris ?
Not sure I’m wise :) but enjoying the comments and yes I can easily see how companies put so much hyperbole in their adverts.

It 'sounds' just fine and the 'sound' changes with the recordings played through it, so it does the job well enough I reckon.

Re: Amps - Whats in em and why?

So 690 views and 40 odd posts and I'm still no more educated than when I started (Bar the one sensible post)

Mods can you please delete this thread please. Fun me.....Hifi Wigwam would have been a better bet.

Polypropylene caps are superior to electrolytics in the signal path of an amp as far as SQ is concerned.This would be true for power supplies also, but polys would be huge in size in the values generally used, which is why ‘lytics are used.
