jupiter HT beeswax cryoed coupling caps

Am I to assume that all Decware amps come with these capacitors now. the Jupiter HT beeswax cryoed capacitors?

Check the product descriptions.  I think they are only standard on the Torii Monos.

Sorry, I am not seeing where it says that.  Can you reference a page?

I just got my SE34I.2.  It would be great if it had those caps because I was thinking about upgrading.

I emailed Steve D about this and I'm pretty sure that you can get them for the Rachel, but it's the same price as the V-Caps and you need to request it as it's not an option when purchasing in the cart.

Thanks, that was my impression as well.  These are an option, not standard.

No go for Rachael, but read the SuperZen description.  It does sound like they are standard.

Is that a "not at all" option or just not a standard option, because I have an email from Steve that says he could do it for the Rachel and cost the same as the V-Caps.  But it's possible he changed his mind since then.

Sorry I wasn't clear on that. It is an option.  I was thinking along the lines of the original post where the question was are they standard.

Hi Guys,

Here's the deal...  we are slowly transitioning from white to black chassis.  At the same time I am taking the opportunity to make any upgrades or improvements I can.  Part of this strategy includes using the Jupiter caps as the stock cap in the amplifiers.  So far everything uses the HT version except the SE34I.3 and TORII MONO's which use the flat stacked version.  These choices made as part of the voicing on each amp.

This means that if you see a new amp from Decware that is black wrinkle finish, it will have cryo treated beeswax caps from Jupiter.  

So on amps that are still white I have not updated the web page or shopping cart options and don't plan on it until the chassis for those amps change to black.

Thanks for clarifying that Steve. Being the owner and heavy user of the Zen CKC,there is nothing quite like this amp with the Jupiter caps. Thanks again

So the SE84CKC (black chassis) product page states that the Jupiter caps are standard, but the SE84ZS (white chassis) product page doesn't mention the Jupiter caps (they're supposed to be the same amps, except for chassis). I just ordered a SE84ZS mainly for the figured base (to match my CSP2+), but with the Jupiter caps, maybe the SE84CKC will sound better? Should I call and have Sarah change my order? Of course, maybe by the time my SE84ZS gets built, they'll be using the black chassis and Jupiter caps.

Alex R,

I just placed an order for a new ZStage and had the Jupiter caps added as an option.  The additional cost was $100 bucks.  

I had talked to Steve about the upgrade and he said that the Jiter caps have a more "organic sound " that just sounds right.  He felt that the addition would be worth the upgrade.  

Just some food for thought.
