A quick search on 'jamicon' before posting your query would have revealed that this question was asked less than two weeks ago. See:

Caps in Aleph 60

If you actually looked at the thread, you'll find out that some other capacitor was recommended and "jamicon" was never mentioned in the succeeding messages.

ps. I read the thread so I know. And I did a search and "jamicon" was never mentioned again.

In the thread you mentioned, the question was asked about Jamicon capacitors but never answered. Jarthel was just asking the same question again. Probably trying to find an answer. He said he searched first. The way you did it sounds like you want to make guys feel uncomfortable which is not helpful at all.

I often use Jamicon caps and have never had any problems. I have used them in high end gear and have not heard any sonic degradation. They have good specifications, I tend to use the 105degC electros.
Some people are very particular about components, especially electros, and will disagree I'm sure.
One thing to keep in mind is that electrolytics are best replaced after about 10 years of age.

For my own tube amps? I weed them $%&in' electros out, you bet! But for solidstate amps and low voltages methinks there's no escape from elelctros and i am glad to know which to take


Jamicon, hmm, interesting. Up to which voltage rating and capacity are they available?





Another hint I got from a very experienced amp designer: he loves the Siemens/Epcos B43503 electros intended for switching power supply use ("snap-in" mountable) which are available up to 450 V and also usable for tube amp PS. I suppose any electro well-suited for switching PS use will do fine for an amp. Such caps ought to handle quite some bandwidth.
