Default ELNA "Harman/Kardon" Caps

Hi everyone!

I'd like to build a proper PSU for Aleph-X and these caps caught my attention.

Have anyone got experience with them?

Many thanks in advance,

Ciao!

Marco

Looks like a bargain if they're genuine and customs is OK.

Does Harmon Kardon manufacture in Thailand perhaps?

Thanks for answering!

i'm relatively new to DIY audio and i've got no good sources for parts but i think that these elnas (if they're as good as Elna-for-Audio, the blue ones with golden strip) are really cheap.

i don't know if H/K manufactures in Thai, Elna sure does.

Anyone knows where to find specs for these capacitors?

I'm interested above all with ESR and ripple current.

Many thanks in advance!

Ciao

It's just an opinion based on a recent search for reasonably priced smoothing caps for an amp.
I'm a fan of Elna caps (again, personal experience) and UK prices seem to be so expensive for similar high capacity, high voltage caps.
Maybe you know different?

I'd love to hear your opinion Jacco. It seems that I may been looking in the wrong places for my supplies.
