Who make the best 10,000uf capacitors
 
I need to buy twelve 10,000uF capacitors for 2 power supplies (ie one for each channel).
Who make the best 10,000uf caps?
Who make the best value 10,000 uf caps?

You havent specified what voltage.
Use more smaller ones. cheaper and better if laid out correctly. Do the sums and you'll see what I mean.

And that much capacitance is completely ridiculous for anything capable of being plugged into a normal outlet.

I suggest you do some more research on power supply theory.

Edit: typos.

It's not unusual to see 60000uF per channel in ClassA amps, OzMikeH :)

Which are 'best' - what does that mean anyway? - I don't know, but Panasonic TS-HA I consider a good bang for the buck.

Have fun, Hannes

If you have noticed my Avatar picture.
These caps are from a Mark Levinson power supply.
Where John Curl have been designer of amplifiers.
A close up of this power supply ( See Attachment ) shows they are PHILIPS electrolyts.
Now there are other making very good electrolyts.

May I suggest a visit to RIFA website. Evox RIFA capacitors.
They have very high class big capacitors.
They are often WHITE.
Here is their
Electroytic Capacitors Application Guide in PDF

Here is another interesting paper:

WHERE IS THE LIMIT?

Nichicon KG's are very good. Likely among the best.

The others to try are the slit foil, 'DNM's T-Network', capacitors from BHC, of course, but specifically the DNM brand 'sourced' type.

I would like them at least rated to 35V

Epcos Sikorel look good

Elna Cerafine were great, but no longer made (I sold a whole bunch of 10000uF/100V about a year ago)

For higher voltage 80V/100V and higher capacitance, I have been using Mundorf. Expensive but very good

Sikorel, have a thick wallet handy... they are on average at least 4 times the price of other caps with similar voltage//capacitance...
