I personally like the manufacturers presence at that site. Using sports parlance, I would prefer to call the enthusiasts there "homers" rather than trolls.

Yes, I go by flintstone over there Bluemike. Troll may have not been the correct word to use as Wellfed pointed out..."homers" works.
I'm not saying that the people over there are bad...or the manufacturers. It does strike me at times that the manufacturers have very strong control over the threads.
I saw a thread over there which stated that if you got into it with one of the Manufacturers he had the power to ban you from the Audiocircle forum...one of the manufacturers did confirm this in that thread so it must be true.
That said, I still visit the site and do post although I'm slowly starting to wonder about the place...I kind of migrated from the old site that closed down (can't recall it's name at the moment) to Audiocircle when it opened...have not posted a whole lot there though.
Thats funny,(pet products)...it does seem outside products are not often the subject of the day although they do come up from time to time....the Belles 350A not long ago was one.
Hi Bluemike, yes I still have the Mantissa...it would cost to much to replace this little honey of a preamp.
Using it with a pair of Rogue Audio tubed monos (M-120 Magnums)...great combo, driving my Apogee Duetta Signatures to near perfection.
I'll guess that your still very happy with you upgraded Mantissa?
Tell me more about the V-cap's Bluemike. I also have a Mantissa into a Mccormack DNA .5 near Rev A. Did you replace or just bypass the white output coupling caps (forgot the brand in there but I believe they are multicaps, which are already internally bypassed)?
Where were the improvements? Top end transparency I would assume. Anything else?
