I bought a nice collection of NOS Styroflex caps with low tolerance.

Yes, basic things were confusing back then, but clear minded men always existed to think "hey that is a weird notion, lets look again into it"...radio days...when audio was king of entertainment.

I think a tot of people, even today, like bandwidth limiting.
Some time ago i had a visitor, a guy maybe 20 years younger then me, working in real estate.
I sat him in the sweet spot of my system and played at what i would call medium volume.
After a short time he requested that i reduce the volume much and after some minutes more he remarked he had " enough". I call that " information overflow ".
It needs some experience to appreciate high end sound and some or even most will never get it.

This is interesting :BD139-16 & BD140-16? Anyone use these transistors?
I did not know that the capacitance between collector and base can simply be measured with a meter. The thread also talks about differences of the same transistors from different brands.

Yes it can, I had done that to verify large Toshiba BJTs I got from random sellers against older trusty sourced ones.

P.S. Not any more informative than comparing for fakes at sow low Vceo a meter provides of course. Bit overblown but follows.
