Okay, I will put some in my CD and the rest on ebay.

Anyone tried Siemens MKL ?

..snip

I don't usually rely on references, but depend on the strength of my own argument to justify my point. However, I couldn't resist this, which I read today in Morgan Jones' 3rd Edition of Valve Amplifiers. Page 222 includes this:

~ , Sanyo's "OS-CON" range of capacitors uses an organic semiconductor electrolyte that significantly reduces ESR. Reduced electrolyte resistivity allows deeper etching, resulting in higher capacitance per unit volume, and therefore reduced inductance. OS-CONS therefore have measureably better high frequency characteristics, and would be ideally suited as cathode bypass capacitors, if it were not for their extremely high price.

Morgan is usually on-target with his judgements.
The capacitors in this case are "stock".

For anyone with an interest in valves, Morgan's 3rd Edition is a must. I recommend it highly.




Edit: That'll be 10 please Mr Jones

Default Did some research today

The OSCONs that I have are purple and say 105, but have magnetic leads, so nothing for the signal path, but for digital decoupling should be very good because 0,4 Ohm @ 100kHz.

Found a website that says @1Mhz and 15MHz better ripple rejection than BG

What about Rubycon GXF 10000F/10V ?

The thing is I plan to build low voltage rail classA amp and 10V caps are perfect.

I wonder if the magnetic leads of the OSCONS do harm if they are in the analog psu.

Also TO3 Fets are magnetic and a lot

Thanks, not another CD player


Maybe make an offer total price for how many pieces you want.

I have 220 and want to keep 40 for own use, the rest 180 pieces I can sell.

Looks like it is the cap for 5V supply of DAC.


I am looking for nonmagnetic resistors, Jahre mica caps, TDA 1541 S1 , Hitachi TO3 fets or substitutes like buz 900 series.

I will never find the need for 180. Maybe 20, or less.

But I have nothing to trade, what's your price?

Wrong thinking, Bricolo ! You'll never get that much wanted stock this way
