Who has Caps on their AC lines ???

I have been playing around with caps on my AC line. After today, I don't think that I can live without them. Even with my dedicated AC lines, the one with the caps just has such a more natural sound no matter what AC power cord I place on it.

Unfortunately, I got them from a guy that I no longer speak to so I don't really know the value of the caps. Is there a way to determine the value?

I have been reading about a few members who use Auricaps, etc., and will try what they are using soon. I am also waiting on an isolation transformer to test in my system next.

I'd like to know what you are using to filter your AC lines and what you are hearing.

Thanks and Happy Listening.
I use the Auricaps on all my outlets too, but couldn't tell you the ratings; although it may be on my system information in one of the upgrade notes I made. This is a very effective, inexpensive tweak to clean up noise. I still use an old Tice Powerblock One with Titan reserve power unit which was the orignal isolation transformer marketed and it does lower the noise floor. There are many newer and better models availble but if you can get a Tice cheap they work well.

Go to the Magnan website. There is an example of this tweak that mentions the cap values even brands and sourcing for them.

Have a look and tell us what you think.

BTW Albert really liked your DC joke in another post....

Auricaps and the like are not AC rated! Be sure you are using 600v dc rated caps and even then they must be protected with a fuse to insure they do not start a fire when they fail. The best way to do this is to simply install them in your individual components, after the power switch and fuse and before the transformer. Thanks!
There is quite a bit of discussion on this on the tweaks board over at audio asylum...start with a search on "auricap". The lack of AC rating is also discussed often. There are AC-rated caps that work well in this application.
