e.g. 7960pF + 39200pF makes 47.16nF Aka, off the mark by 1/3%.
14000pF + 698pF = 14.998nF

Completely agree here. Several of these "audiophile capacitor test" sites like Humble Homemade Hifi have come about over the past few years and some of these types now have their own lines of capacitors or other components. Stay clear of them. I have tried costly audiophile approved capacitors and slowly sold them back into the audiophile community after testing them. They are no different from the cheapest lines of other film caps, and most are rebrands.
Their opinions are now paraded around on boutique sales sites as the whole truth and nothing but the absolute truth to boost sales.
Who here can guess who actually makes Jantzen capacitors or who makes the company's drivers? All those years he wrote like a normal customer and it turned out he owned the brand and was shilling his wares.
