    Some XO capacitor discussion Elsewhere recently (last night) turned up this link, which I offer strictly as-is and FWIW, no warranty express or implied :)

    If nothing else, it's a pretty extensive laundry list of XO capacitor opportunities -- at least a snapshot in time thereof.

    Seemed worth sharing in the context of this thread :|

    Thanks for the link.

    As for the NAD C272 power amp I have no worries about it not being able to handle the lowered impedance. The lower DCR rating of the Jentzen C Coil is the reason I'm considering it. If I remember Mathew Polk has said lower DCR on the SDA inductor would be beneficial.
