Volleyguy, did dueland give you any idea of approximate ti ... Sherod
Duelund did say this is a quote from an e-mail
"The CAST has to my ears a quite lower noise floor than the VSF, right out of the box the HF may sound a little dulled on the CAST but this dissappears completely after 7 days".
I just wanted to say to everyone I am in no way disapointed with Duelund. Maybe my words confused some.
I only meant that the tweeter caps were such a MASSIVE improvement that the midrange was somewhat of a let down in comparison. That being said the Duelund tweeter caps was the biggest improvement I have ever heard in any upgrade including new sources or amps or anything.
Now piling on the the hours and I am not concerned.
Steen in his writings did say that foil caps or variations of the that were the way to go and did say some of the vintage were quite good. That is where Duelund gets there idea's from.
I am running the Duelund VSF in the midrange and the CAST tweeter caps. The caps are much faster in the midrange than the vintage. Almost like the CD running to quick.
Tommorow is the big day for me as I am hooking up the Lp12 which is my main concern anyway. I always thought the Karik a crappy CD player anyway.
I was only shocked that the CD player sounded good with the vintage cap (mid range) which I think is likely slow and round sounding to smooth out the digital.
With having the all vintage Klipsch there I can switch over at any second and do and always break out into laughter. At one point at the start of this thread I was not sure which was better the Klipsch or Linn speakers after hearing a Duelund crossover speaker both are just an absolute joke!
