    Default Cap Upgrade Ideas for VTL's

    So, when I got my amps the guy I bought them from stated they have upgraded MIT caps. However after looking at them not 100% sure they are as some are not marked so was thinking about recapping the amps at some point.

    I heard that some guys did paper and oil caps and was looking to get ideas.

    I don't want to add anything sluggish to the sound and still want it to remain open and clean. I like the sound of the amps but just want to ensure they will last awhile still.

    Are you recapping the power supply of your amp?

    +1 on Mundorf. I use the Silver in oil in my DAC and they are fantastic! The silver and gold in oil I hear are even better, but have not personally heard them. The silver in oil are worth the price though, I will say that.
