Introduction of Mr. HF Choi
My name is HF Choi I am in the UK and looking for quality JSX cap for DIY hifi.

Original letter from Mr. HF Choi
I received the capacitors a couple weeks ago and have installed them in my DAC.

I installed the 4 JSX 1uF caps as bypass on the output electrolytic caps of the DAC (2 caps per channel, each 150uF), so the bypass was less than 1%.
Immediately on first listen I could hear that the bass was bloated and the soundstage was closed in but the treble was a bit sweeter.

I let the DAC continue to play for 50 hours after which the bass improved dramatically. It sounded like an extra octave lower was added. Also, the treble was becoming more tangible and fine details throughout the frequency range became audible whereas before they were not. Nuances now audible in the music making instruments sound more real changed the tonality of entire pieces of music. It slowed the music down somewhat for some fast bass music but also sped up music with fast transient treble. Nice, as this probably means there's now less signal smearing and timing issues.

I find there's now a less of a difference between redbook tracks and DSD tracks. Both sound smooth and detailed now but DSD more dynamic with good recorded material. Still very enjoyable with the improvement in tonality, timing, low level detail and nuances, and improved frequency extension - and of course price is very good. I’ve used them for hundreds of hours so far.

I chose the JSX because of the small size. Compared with large and expensive Mundorf and similar grade caps, it is an easy choice. Very high price/performace ratio with the JSX.
I am very satisfied with the performance of the JSX . Thanks for a great product!
