No. Just don't think that "phenomenal bass" and chipamp belong to the same sentence.

A lot of them even OFC copper.
Btw. the panasonic FM is the electrolytic cap with the lowest ESR anyway.
You cannot fit steel to aluminium without a complex proces, så you´ll never find steel in places like that.

The coil is aluminium, and in larger cans the terminals are also aluminium.
I have yet to find a single Panasonic FM series capacitor that has copper leads. I have purchased about 30-40 different values and voltages. Not one copper leaded cap in the bunch.

My prefered for the the time being. Seems like they add an extra octave in the bass . Soundstage is deep and detailed.

Panasonic FM is scratch.

Panasonic FM have tinned steel lead wires. They are good caps but the FC are just a slight tad better (in audio) although specifications of the FM indicate the opposite. Both are good industrial caps that offer good value for money and they last. I use them a lot and never had one failing till now. If Matsushita would produce them with tinned copper wires I would not bother to look further. Unfortunately they don't...

Caps that "seem to add an octave" are suspicious. Caps should filter ripple in power supplies, not add octaves of bass.

Hi,

What is the most important for a cap when it feed transistor ?

ESR-ESL or capacity in curent ?

For example Philips/BC 104 or 136 are knwon for their high capacity in curent (and in datashhet the higher value the lower ESR) but they sound coldy with harchness IMHO ?
Where can I find the capacity in curent in a cap datasheet ?

cheers,
Eldam

power transistor, or small signal ...?

as for bigger supply caps, the new Kemet/Rifa looks tempting

Do you mean: curent for power transistor and ESR for small signal ? I don't understand...

Some industrials Siemens are famous too here for power supply stages because of their curent capacity but don't know if they sound well like the smaller Elna Silmic or KS muse I use for example near the discrete stage or opamp for example... And a Elna Tonorex is not as punchy and transparent as a Philips but has more natural sound !

If I have a look in an famous golded japonese poweramp : just 2 big caps of 22 000 uf /71 V... and press say it sounds good?!

have you a ref for the Kemett you talk about ?

Where is the value please I need to look at in a datasheet for current capability... is it ripple ?
