Capitole MKII Phase controller ..0 or 180 ?..

Im confused on what this phase controller is and where it should be applied.. I do here some difference when I play with it but where does one utilise this feature ?

Hi Matt,

Was catching up on all the info and the Kharma's. I do believe that this phase can also be inverted unfortunately per track on each album. I always saw a difference while using my ML32 and using the phase correction, I look for the difference in the high's and voice. Can't wait to get my 32 back.

Some people have preamps or amps that invert phase. So, they would have to invert phase on the CD player to compensate for that. As already mentioned, some CDs are recorded improperly or mastered improperly with inverted phase.
It's usually easier to detect inverted phase in tracks with a vocalist. If it sounds like the singer is recessed behind the speakers or the background instruments seem closer than the vocalist, try the phase button. If the vocalist comes forward, you're in the right phase.
Thanks for the response guys .. yeah .. I played with it but heard squat ! .. well.. maybe one day Ill hear something worng ina recording and shifting phase will bring it all together.

Am I missing something. I own the Audio Aero Capitole Mark II Cd player. Sorry. but what-the-hell are y'all talking about? Again, sorry........?
Hey Unc!
I don't know if you're confused about the abilities of the Cap II, or about phase inversion....?
Simply put, phase inversion is occurring when your speaker drivers are operating in reverse. They pull in first, then push out the sound, instead of firing forward first like they should. It would be the same thing as if you switched your positive and negative speaker leads at the speaker. Everything would operate backwards.
Does that help?
