    Default SDA SRS 2.3TL Clarity Cap ESA GROUP BUY

    I have talked to Jesse about this in the past -

    These will be exact values of those needed for the SDA 2.3TL - no .2 off or anything, exact values

    Special order lead time is 4-8 weeks...

    Includes 2 of the following values - 16 UF, 8 UF, 5.8 UF, 18 UF, 27 UF

    Have to have a quantity of 10 each for this to work... so that is 5 people (a pair of caps per person)

    Cost of this upgrade is $385.00 SHIPPED to you with Paypal

    Just curious if we can help ol F1NUT out!

    Trust me, you will want to hear your 2.3TL's with these caps in them. Detail, transparancy, soundstage, and imaging is off the charts good. These are much better than the Sonicaps, IMO.

    I may be a player.Let me talk to Jesse about it but keep me on the list.
    I would figure on doing a whole new set with these and keep the others he did for me for comparison.

    What no love for the SDA 1C's.
    4.4 uF, 12 uF, 20 uF and maybe 40 uF (Could use 2 20's).

    The big question is are they the 250 Vdc or 630 Vdc, IMO the 630 Vdc is just over kill.

    That will be enough to do the pair, (left and right) SDA 2.3Tls speakers, right?
    So I got in $200 for the 2 boards from gimpod and $385 for the caps, $585. So do you know about where I am on the rest of the parts? That would be minus the inductors of course.

    Resistors would be maybe 20-30 tops

    I can also include Mundorf resistors in the order if you want, just let me know

    The quote above is for a PAIR of 2.3TL

    Just resistors and hardware, Welcome to the rabbit hole.

    Vr3 I'd only be interested in the 250V ones for my 1C's.

    Some claim the 630v version sounds better...I've never compared them myself though.

    Yea sorry that's right so $100 for the 2 boards and $385 for the caps and are the Mundorf resistors better than the Mills? I guess if am going to go to the high road do it all the way.

    I honestly like Mundorf Mox a bit better than Mills, Mills seems a little more colored

    lol... there are only two resistors on the 2.3TL crossover!

    If you want to go with Mundorf Mox resistors, add $5.00 on to your total!

    Thanks!

    If you're going all out, go Duelund. :)

    Man so much information, does these posts make sense? you can call me Earl


    http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr...keyw&zzclarity

    The best cap out of all of them and nearly equal to the best duelunds are the Clarity cap MR's.. However they are even more expensive than the Mundorfs best, but they are better than any of the mundorfs if you want solid dynamics, super smooth distortion free, and the best bass.

    Here's the place to buy the Claritycaps. And make sure they are the new, blue-colored MR caps. Much more expensive, but well worth it.:

    Correction on the previous post, $10.00 for Mundorf resistors

    Clarity Cap MR would be over a thousand bucks to do the 2.3TL and I can also do a bulk buy on that for correct values but the ESA is real close to the MR and a fraction of the cost...

    I'm not sure I'd say real close, different is more like it.

    lol.. well for 30% of the cost of the MR I would say it is close...

    How much better can you get from awesome and at what cost... I think it goes back to how much are you willing to pay for that last 10%

    I highly recommend Duelund resistors as Face and VR3 have said. IMO, they are more transparent, detailed and have less coloration (towards being slightly too warm) than the Mills or Mundorf. If you like the coloration of the Mills, then by all means go for it. Mills are still not as detailed however. The Duelunds are much more expensive than the Mills and Mundorf resistors, but if this is your "final" crossover upgrade (until the next one) then I highly suggest Duelund Cast resistors. They are worth the money for either 2 resistors (or 4 if you are putting them in the polyswitch spot). Don't question it, just do it and be happy.

    VR3- I'm interested in the price for the 250V when you get a quote. 300+ is past my budget right now. Just got my 2.3TL's father's day and have rings on the way, spikes ready to be installed as well as dynamat ready. Gimpods boards are calling me and now you have to post this.... my wallet really hates this board.
