Default 10uf film capacitor for BOSOZ?

I have been looking for a 10uf cap for my bosoz and am unable to find one. anyone have some hints of a good quality (but reasonably priced) one? i saw some hovlands, audio notes, etc... but all are outrageous. anything in like the $5-$10 range each?

Black Gate, N type 10u/50V. Will cost you $4.50/pc and is probably much better than Wima (not to mention Hovlands and Jensens)

Default 10uf cap

Few you can try:

1. for testing version: use this one
http://www.shopforelectronicsparts.c.../item7243.html

2. for good diy:
try Solen 10uf 250v
http://www.hndme.com/storesolen250.html

3. other good one.
I once purchased 20 very good 10uf/100V film cap, 20 pcs/$19.99
He still have some, but I forgot his name...

4. for better one,
Rifa or Wima 10uf/160V. I recently purchased from Asia for about $3 per piece + shipping, but they are out of stock now. They are very hard to find...

Enjoy!

Thomas

thanks guys. i didnt have a hard time finding what i needed, but i did have a hard time finding the value in the price range, and finding something in stock. mouser just picked up wima, but they dont have any in 10uf.

also, isnt the blackgate n type an electrolytic? but if it works, its in the price range. i found a solen in the range. so, its between the solen and the blackgate i guess. any other suggestions? (i have to be able to find it to buy though...), i cant find wimas and others.

I really like the North Creek Music Polypro caps. They sell a 10uf 250v cap for $5.95 and I think it sounds as good as some of the more expensive caps out there. Take a look at:

Default 10uf

Try this one in Taiwan for Rifa 10uf/100V. The cost is about $3.2 per pc + shipping. I belive EMS shipping (air) is about $10 for 10-20 pcs.

FYI

If you still don't like the look of anything mentioned so far, have a look at the polypropylene film ones at maplins (just search for VM93) as you can get some prety decent 10uF ones for about $15.00 (although they are monsters at nearly two inches long and about two inches in diameter). If you are interested, let me know as I should be able to get them at a bit less than the price above on staff, but I would have to check the price to know how much less they would be.
