You can customize it with whatever caps you want etc.. It's a tubed DAC that is fully balanced. If you want to get in touch with Sam Laufer, let me know. Lot's of great options right now.
    I wasn’t clear, are you saying you own a Brinkmann, if so, MK I or II? Also, what did you just sell?

    Re: Nyquist MK II DAC

    LOL...sorry, that's the MS. I just sold my Ayre QX5/20 DAC. I have extensive auditioning with the Nyquist and also the mk2. Wonderful products that I would probably own if I didn't go with the Laufer Teknik DAC that I currently own in prototype form. Mark and Sam are making a major upgrade already by making it a two box unit and upgrading many of the components. Mark is a genius (literally) and has a great ear for audio. His software is ground breaking stuff (in his server). feel free to read up on it on their website.
    System:
    Vandersteen Quatro CT
    Ayre AX5/20
    The Memory Player with built in DAC and headphone amp built in on order
    AQ Niagara 1000 power device
    Audioquest William Tell bi wire speaker cable
    Wireworld 8 optical cable into the Empirical Audio Synchro Mesh from the TV and Blueray to reclock
    Wireworld Platnium 8 ethernet cables into the EMO 70e ethernet filter into The Memory Player from Eero mesh router
    All routers, cable box and synchro mesh powered by the Wyred4sound LPS box with separate supplies for each
    Audioquest power outlets and four dedicated power lines in the room
    ZMF Ori headphones with the Audioarts 15' Pono balanced cable for the QX5/20
    Empire Ears Phantom CIEM's
    Rhapsodio 2.98 mk2 gold plated silver cable for Phantom
