Musical Fidelity V-CAN X-TRA upgrade kit
X-Tra caps

Max out your V-CAN with the Rock Grotto capacitor upgrade kit! Every part has been chosen for it's sonic ability after many hours evaluating a wide selection of components - You can be sure the Rock Grotto Upgrade kit will turbo charge your V-Can to levels that even some £400 amps can only dream about!

The capacitors I have chosen for this kit are the SAMWHA VA series (and a couple of OSCONS), they are long life types, low impedance and have a very high temperature rating of 135C so you can be assured they will give many many years of reliable, trouble free, service. The kit also includes gain resistors to give you a bit more control over the volume (the volume control is a bit too immediate in the stock amp) and ferrite links to replace the input caps and reverse polarity protection diode.

The capacitor values are higher than the stock capacitors, hence "X-Tra", the extra capacitance on board takes the V-CAN to new heights of sonic pleasure and it comes extremely close to the X-CAN V8 in performance.

Price for the Capacitor kit = £45 GBP (£6 postage and packing worldwide)

I am also offering a capacitor plus opamp kit for those of you who wish to go the extra mile... the opamp I have chosen for the kit is a major improvement over the stock opamp, it has greater clarity, better seperation and smooth silky midrange articulation. The capacitor + opamp kit will come with a high quality turned pin DIP14 socket as standard which will enable future opamp rolling.
