Black Gate vs Siemens (Epcos) MKV for HT suppy of SET amp (Filter)
Has anyone got any experience of which are best as filter caps on a CLC filter for a high voltage supply for a SET amp - either the Black Gate WKZ heart of muse or siemens (epcos) MKV, which are polypropylene "Self-healing Plastic dielectric Oil-impregnated tubular windings (no PCB) Metal-sprayed end faces". I will be using smaller MKV as coupling caps. The MKV are 12uF so I will be using quite a number to get ca. 60uF- the Black Gates are 220uF+220uF. A second question - the BGs have three terminals, for 2 x 220uF, with the third being earth. Can the two caps be connected in series, to give double the V rating and 110uF?
Thanks for any help
