petp for high quality sound?, i wouldnt listen to them with your ears. i've only ever used them to any effect in switching power supply sections as they are cheap, i will never use them in signal path again, i found thev to be awfully gaussian in the upper mids and reading the beginning of the thread where you rated these highly, but BG was placed above polypropelene film and metal foil and teflon film and foil types sealed the deal, i wont try these ones either.

I wouldn't mind some gaussian sound, especially the 3588's

It's not low end. You have not tried these particular caps. This thread is regarding specific petp caps on Ebay, so your post isn't helpful. No one is talking about MKP either.

Given the cost comes down to just a few dollars per cap for 10uf for instance, it's not nearly as big a risk as the cost for 10uf in Teflon, Paper-in-oil, Copper Foil, etc. I read plenty of complaints about $xxx Teflon caps that are too bright, or too detailed, too plastic-y, too long to burn in... THAT is throwing your money away.

I'd like to thank Audiojoy for the scoop on these capacitors - dirt cheap and far better than many more expensive caps I've heard IMHO (Jensen, Black Gate, Cerafine, Silmic, Jupiter etc etc). Ordinarily PETP caps haven't got a reputation for sounding great, and I wouldn't consider them for signal path use. However there's exceptions to every rule and these would appear to be it - buy some now before the prices go up! Extremely neutral sounding - I really can find nothing to complain about; no obvious sound signature at all really. Get's out of the way and lets whatever preceds it to determine the audio quality... just what you want from a signal path cap really! Perhaps the variety of cap (i.e. polypropylene, polystyrene, polyster etc) is actually less important than the construction quality... these K73-16 appear to be very well made indeed.

Whatever the reasons (and I'm grasping at straws to find a reason), ignore these at your peril - they have absolutely NO business sounding this good, particularly at these giveaway prices. Well worth a try folks! (what's to lose?)

What do you call it when you revive an old thread?

So is this true, I've been reading the whole thread without mention of bass quality, and then somebody askes and that's it thread over!
