I have found the Russian PETP's to be bettter sounding in the signal path than cheap poly's like Solens for example. Bang for buck, they are just about unbeatable. However, if you start getting serious. Dueland cast are the best of the best. Everything else is a compromise. Including Silver Gold Oils, Clarity MR's.

They play in the same league as the PETP.

for speaker crossovers is there any difference in performance between the 63V and 160V versions? Have you tried them charge-coupled?

That's a really good question. Is a 63V PETP cap suitable for use in a speaker crossover? I have never used a cap with a voltage rating that low but I can't see any harm in trying.

so i replaced a number of caps with petp in my crossover.
no grain, no slack and plenty of detail; remarkable. but still, how do you guys stand the sound? it's way too bright!
pianos and cymbal pop at you like flashing lightbulbs.

has break in been experienced for these caps or should i just go buy the good ol solens?
