Identify Manufacturer of Caps
1 Attachment(s)

I know these are 1uF 400V MKP Polypropylene Caps.

Question is - "Who made them ?"

Are they better or worse than WIMA MKS4 in audio.

Are they comparable in performance to WIMA MKP4 in audio.

I'm playing with the input caps of a Pass B1.

Siemens GMBH, now Epcos.

Can anyone point me to the thread about identifying electrolytics using the bursting pattern on their cans ?

Do these look genuine ?

I'm always wary of compoents these days - I've been caught out once already.

Do these Nichicon caps look genuine ?

Can anyone find the photo of the bursting patterns of popular caps.
