What’s in a Portaphile, Part III (Or what’s not….)

No capacitors in the signal path.   The bottom line is that putting capacitors in the signal changes the sound.  I don’t care how good or expensive the capacitor is, putting one in the signal path will alter the frequency response in some way.  Read up on it and you will commonly find terms such as “less coloration” or the “least change in frequency response”  when it comes to putting capacitors in the signal path.   The bottom line is, you won’t be hearing the sound as it was intended to be heard.   We believe in fidelity which to us means no capacitors in the signal path.

As you may have heard or read before:

Rule #1, No capacitors in the signal path.
Rule #2, The best capacitor is no capacitor.

When it comes the signal path, we stick to the rules.
