Interesting, I used some of ERO greens in a MC240 rebuild and liked them, I tried some of the white TRWs and took them out.

Solen MKP is great...no wonder it's the most widespread in high quality commercial products. I wouldn't ever spend much more on a cap, anyway

Ha ha hahahhaha. It's ridiculous to make such a big deal of capacitors.

Solens are very transparent... and I know what I'm talking about.

Maybe hardcores are looking for something particularly seductive.... I look for transparency, and I love Solen's.

Maybe there exist even better sounding capacitors...but when the Solen's are so cheap and so good, it makes no sense, for me. Really, I can't find significant flaws in their sound quality...
