Default Identify Manufacturer of Caps

OK.

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.

Default 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 ?
