Is it recommended to use 1000uf/35v silmic2 x 10 pieces in parallel rather than one 10000uf Mundorf AG Mlytic? The reasons are paralleling the caps will reduce the esr by 10 times and the ripple current of each silmic 2 caps is 1.6 Amps and x 10 will be 16 amperes. If I take just Mundorf it gives only 4.8 amps. But i dont have the esr for the silmic2 i believe using this will reduce the esr substantially resulting strong psu.

Does anybody knows the esr of the silmic 2 I couldnt find it in the datasheet.

I found this kind of psu system in Aussieamplifiers ..

whats your opinion. Which is better in this case?

price wise both come to close but ripple current will be pretty high and esr will be pretty low. Im only concerned with the signature of these two caps.

If the signature of elna silmic 2 is better then its better to use these as psu caps. The ripple current using in 10 parallel caps is higher than the Mundorf Mlytic HC+ which is phenomenal... but if anybody says to use Silmic 2 as psu it would be great.. On bulk purchase we can get better pricing on silmic2
