Default Looking for Blackgate caps, in australia.

I'm in Australia and I will order from overseas but the dealer needs to be able to ship to Australia. Who is a reputable source who will ship to AU that also sells blackgates?

I noticed the only thread asking where to get them was from 2006. so.


Are they even made anymore? If not what is a good substitute.

Thanks! As of the original post I've also found Standard Type | Hifi Collective

And I've read that Elna Silmic II's are an OK sub.

Also bear in mind that electrolytic capacitors deteriorate significantly with age,
even when not being used.

They were discontinued sometime around 20 years ago.
Ten years ago they were rare and expensive NOS parts or fakes.
These days I expect mostly fakes

These are supposed to be made somewhat as replacements;
Audio Note KAISEI Electrolytic Capacitor

I haven't tried them, or the blackgate for that matter.
