Default Best Capacitor

Hi all,

I'm thinking to change my VTL monoblock capacitor to something better but Vcap is too expensive for me. Anyone can recommend through their experience in using the capacitors?.

rating 0.47k 400v

TQ

Default Best ?????

Best capacitor? Best is so very subjective. You, your ears, your system, in your listening environment, in your price range, and your overal likes or dislikes may determine "best" for you.

There is an extensive thread Coupling Caps where capacitors have been subjectively tested. Inbedded in the thread are links to other capacitor testing/rating threads.

Within Cap Shootout there are at least two links to rating/testing threads. Whether or not you find the "best" cap for your application may well be found within these threads.

Hope this gets you on the road to audio nirvana.

I wish I knew where to get some EPCOS (B25834) 4.7uF caps in America.

Not easy to get here but worth trying.

Both Sharpi and DaveT recommend them out of all they tried!

TQ, try them and read Dave's thread!

Regards//Keith

Default EPCOS

I have been remiss in posting a review of caps provided by Sharp31. In messages to him he is prepared to get a lot of the caps from a source in GB. The intent is to make them available to DIYers.

The supply will very limited and the value wil be 7 mfd. It was my intent to set up a WIKI for ordering, but that and the review are still pending. These caps will be available in the USA.

Hi Dave,

I hope all is well!

Any chance of six 4.7uf caps with decent voltage rating and 5% or better tolerance?

Thanks!

Regards//Keith
