Default Pio russian capacitor K42-11...is good ?

This K42-11 is really a paper in oil capacitor ?
Work fine in audio coupling or the K40Y-9 is best ? Any experience ?

Thanks,

Aldovan

K42Y-2 are metallized paper in oil but K40Y-9 are metal foil,paper in oil. Both are excellent(if you like PIO;not everyone does)and beautifully constructed, although,in theory, the K40Y-9(much bigger) should be better.

The different suffix,11, may mean it is a variant for special purpose,for instance,high frequency use. I am sure some member of the forum will know this.

Actually, I have just looked at the ones you mean(which I have not tried) and they seem to be large value lower voltage without the usual glass sealed steel case.

I did not see post number 2- yes,probably no oil!

K40 are better for amps with no feedback around caps applied. With feedback I sense no difference.

Default K42Y-2 is a PIO capacitor ?

Friends

Some time ago I got a lot of K42Y-2 tubes in ebay.
I make a comparation with a old ( 60īs) brazilian made PIO capacitor( the brand make this oil capacitor until today here) and the brazilian sound best...this K42Y-2 is really PIO or for the russians sellers PIO is Plastic In Oil ?
In ebay have a confusion and few information about the material used in this russian capacitors...

Very useful information.

I'm actually surprised at how well google translate worked on this page - it's completely readable..

Except 76, it is lacquer-film.

Google translate gets better and better, thanks to many contributors. I myself contribute almost every time I see incorrect translation. I wish my English would improve so fast.
