Where is the best place to get Black Gate caps. Any of the big electronic houses have them? I've only found Michael Percy audio and one other one?

Do a google for them. There is a guy in Hawai that sells them cheaper than anywhere I have found.

I've tried the Pk's in an SI and thought that they sounded pretty good, but in my opinion, the HI-Q's and N series are better. The 4.7 uf N series is probably the best bet because they don't produce the extreme turn-on sound effects associated with the larger value (22uf) Hi-Q's. There is still an audible pop, but not as loud.You can try www.partsconnexion.com as another source for BG's

Hi,

Could you tell me who the guy in Hawaii that sells the black gates is? Do you have a web address?

Thanks, Nick
