Kendeil K05 or Mundorf M-Lytic PSU caps
 
Hi everyone.

Has anyone compared Kendeil K05 with Mundorf M-Lytic AG?

I've been looking to replace two 10.000uf 50v caps with either of these, but can't decide nor find any opinion regarding this.

I can't find any Siemens Sikorel around, and I think they can't fit my amp.

Also, I will be using 63v instead of the 50v, but can I place 15.000uf caps? Will I benefit anything from doing this?

Thank you all!

So, no one cares to kindly answer?

Just tell me if I can use 15.000uF instead of the 10.000uF and will I get any benefit in doing this?

I have used Mundorf in various occasions. I have no experience on this Kendeil K05 but Iīve used also Nichicon KG and Panasonic, Rubycon, Siemens. All from these Mundorf has been sonically superior. By-pass it with some nice small poly and thatīs it.

I have used the Kendeils and Mundorfs in a few projects, notably rectifier smoother boards for pre-amps. There's less difference between the sound of either of them than there is between a Murata and a Q-speed diode IME.

More of less capactiance, who knows what difference you will get, I'd suggest the trade off would be between smaller lower ESR caps and higher value higher ESR ones. All things being equal I'd Paralell 3 x 10,000uf rather than use 2x 15,000uf

Also look at these
BHC - AudioCap Limited
Serious audiocaps, especially the T networks although more expensive.
Rifa peh169 probably the best but some restrictions.

What restrictions do you mean regarding the rifa caps?

Thank you everyone for your answers.

I don't think I can fit 3x10.000uF... I know 2 fit, but 3 should be too much.

Regarding BHC, I have read a few bad reviews. AFAIK, the best ones were the ALC20, these were great, but are not available anymore. Those T-Network are too expensive. I am looking at Kendeils costing 1/5th of that, and should be good enough. At least they are for Naim...

This capacitor needs to be mounted upright or in a horizontal position but with an incline. It has a breathing vent so you cannout mount it like other caps with the leads into a pcb, the leads, in this case the screws need to be turned upwards or the pcb should be mounted on top of the caps.

I think youll find those giving those reviews are just biased, I find 20 good reviews to 1 bad review. In the good reviews concerning BHC they are rated even or better than Kendeils, the specs show this as well. I have several amps using these some are 20 years old, cap leakage tests show they are still within 15 percent of their new state, Ive never encountered a cap behaving this well. This feat is said to be found with the rifas as well.

HI!
I am looking for 6800uf - 35volt caps to upgrade a creek amp. So far I only found some
NKG-080 - 6800uF 35V Nichicon KG Type, Gold Tune, snap-in
[NKG-080].
I know they are not bad, But I'd prefer Kendeil or BHC... or Mundorfs, of course, but I didn't find the right values.
If I will not find what I want I guess I'll buy the KG Elnas that are not bad at all and
"By-pass it with some nice small poly and thatīs it".
My question is : what values can I use to by pass psu caps with 6800uf and 35 volts?
Better, can someone give me some specific examples of a few caps to use in this aplication? PLEASE!!!
In this Creek integrated, the old 4040 that I allways liked a lot, the circuit board is populated with some litle blue caps - 10uf, 1uf, 22 uf... all with 50volts. They have just a decent quality I guess - they're rubycons.
I decided to replace them by Cerafines. Do you experienced diyers agree with this choice?
Thanks again for your help and advise.
