We've seen how the RIAA filter behaves with low and very low capacitor values. (See all simulation articles here) Now let's have a look at what happens if the capacitor values are higher than the recommended ones.


This is the Muffsy Phono Preamp with capacitor values that are 2.5% higher than specifi...

I wanted to know what happened to the Muffsy RIAA compliance if the capacitors were out of spec, and started with a plausible scenario where the capacitors were 3% below their stated values.


This time, lets see what happens if the capacitor values are extremely low. Let's say they're 10% below what ...

The RIAA equalization added to vinyl records can and do vary wildly, and you might rightfully say that a phono stage's RIAA compliance doesn't matter too much.


It's still a standard, and it should be one of the considerations when choosing a phono stage.


The Muffsy Phono Preamp uses Wima MKS2 capacito...

In my quest to make sure that you get the highest quality components for your phono stage,  I have received new capacitors for the Muffsy Power Supply.


The ones delivered with the kit until now have been a very tight fit, so these have 2mm smaller diameter. These new 16mm capacitors will make it even...
