Mundorf M-Cap Supreme Capacitor

Listening Impression:

The M-CAP SUPREME introduces affordable high-end sound to any quality speaker drivers. It delivers a very spatial sound with plenty of depth and gives good reproduction of the musical nuances. Detail and depth from the high treble right down into the low mid-range becomes more distinct. This is your first step into high-end crossovers. The Supreme is a clear and transparent sounding cap with a good sound stage, providing a good improvement in clarity, focus and dynamics. The degree of improvement is comparable to upgrading to high-end cabling. We were definitely very impressed when we first auditioned them.

Mundorf M-Cap Silver Oil Capacitor

Listening Impression:

Mundorf states: “…wonderfully spacious and detailed sound reproduction …an even fuller and smoother tonal richness and diversity. This capacitor’s ability to bring out the finest nuances and the subtlest distinctions make the music sound more alive and “juicy”, yet without unnatural emphasis of any individual effects. …Wonderfully spacious music reproduction… ”. Yes, exactly what we felt when we first sampled the Supreme Silver/Oil capacitors. The air, bloom and the high-end feel just became more apparent. The cap gives heighten attention to music detail and depth throughout from top to bottom. The music presentation is very smooth and liquid. The only drawback is the extremely long burn-in period and the rollercoaster performance while waiting. To overcome this teething problem, we offer a 100hour, 200hour or 300hour burn-in service for a minimal charge.

Mundorf M-Cap Silver/Gold Oil Capacitor

Listening Impression:

The Silver/Gold in Oil is Mundorf’s current highest offering and they are among one of the best and most exotic capacitors available in the market. They are expensive but honestly, it is worth it. Compared to the Mundorf Silver/Gold, they have better layering and sound even more airy. The spatial soundstage window is opened wider and deeper. They are richer tonally and better layered than the Mundorf Silver/Gold. The Silver/Gold/Oil excels in refinement of highs and micro-details like the like the Mundorf Silver/Gold but takes it a few levels ahead in extension and creates more depth and width as if you have a larger area beyond the confinement of your room or car. Install it and you may never want to remove it.

Duelund VSF Aluminum Capacitor

Listening Impression:

Calm as a sleeping baby. The Duelund VSF capacitors give you that smile the minute you press the play button. The chocolate bar actually tastes better than it looks. One is tempted to close the eyes (although it is not a good idea while driving) and relax in sheer peacefulness as the music flows from the speakers to your ears and down to your heart and soul. The VSF Aluminum is Duelund’s most entry level offering but it still spells high-end at an affordable level. It is has less flair and is leaner sounding than some of the other high-end capacitors but they sound very natural and has the tonal that most capacitors are dying to achieve. Compared to the VSF Copper, it sounds more forward and less layered. Nevertheless to say, if you own a really kick-ass high-end speaker driver, you ought to take a bite on these.

Duelund VSF Copper Capacitor

Listening Impression:

We were charmed by this capacitor. The VSF Copper comes across very natural, smooth, clear, open and keeps everything in place in an extremely calm and controlled manner. One may think that this is a boring capacitor like some analog sounding capacitors in the market but we term it very natural for its ability to deliver dynamics whenever the type of music calls for it. The tonal balance and harmonics is a definite win-win and we love how it sounds with both instruments and human voices. It does not have the depth and wow factor like the Mundorf Silver/Gold/Oil but it makes up for it with its awesome tonality. We were extremely happy with how the imaging and separation of every individual instrument is portrayed with precision rather than cluster. And we just have to stress again, the VSF Copper is exceptionally natural sounding. This is a definite must have for any serious audiophile or music lover.

 

Duelund Cast Copper Capacitor
the king of the capacitors!

Listening Impression:

The Duelund CAST Capacitor is our no holds barred flagship capacitor. The construction builds on the foundation of our Virtual Stack Foil design but does so with the addition of a proprietary WPIO dielectricum which necessitates several days of impregnation under high pressure. We will spare you the technical details but as complicated it may seems, wait till you have heard how it sounds. The cast design helps music flow effortlessly with utmost presence and palpability. The background is pitch black, quiet and extremely calm. Music is delivered in a timely and high-end fashion. It is a seriously no games, just music and the best that money can buy when it comes to capacitors for passive crossovers. It is available as pure copper or pure silver.
