Default Audyn Caps - US Source?

Hello,

I am trying to acquire about 4 of either of the following Audyn 4.7uF caps:

1. Audyn Cap Plus - 800V
2. Audyn KP-SN - 100V

Between shipping and export/import taxes, these caps are too expensive to purchase from Europe. Any idea where I can get ahold of some in the US?

Thanks,
Bryan

Hi,

Probably no good to you but here goes anyway:

Intertechnik distributors & dealers:

Germany Intertechnik and Open Air Loudspeaker

The Netherlands Speakerland/Speaker & Co

Australia GSO Audio

CAPS, CAPS & MORE CAPS...

Cheers,

Default Audyn caps

I am virtually sure Audyn caps are simply rebranded SCR (SOLEN)caps which should be available in North America. Try Angela Instruments( www.angela.com ) or Parts Connection.
Good Luck
Khush.

Unless highlly mandatory reasons to stick with Audyn, Mundorf caps are way better reputable

Hope this helps

Yesiree...that is what I heard too.

But Audyn just sounds better than Solen. (The name that is)

You could be right. But if Audyn does not make their own standard polyprops who is making their Plus series?

Solen does not make a "plus" type cap as far as I know.

PS...on a slightly different subject..from the voltage specs it 800V appears as if they parallel 2 normal 400V caps in opposite "polarity" ? or are the parallel caps (by themselves) of better quality than their standard stuff???

or 2 600volts for the 1200volt versions.



Cheers,
Bas

Default series

AFAIK the Mundorf Supreme cap is built that 2 bifilar wound caps

are connected in series so that the inner foils are the nodes and

the outer foils are just connected. So you get 2 20F caps for one

10F in your hand.

I have plenty of Audyn+ es and MCap Sups but they are totally

different, both in sound AND mechanical making.

Intertechnik claims a similar procedure for their +es.

Maybe they are made by the same OEM manufacturer but to

different specs. Everybody can have made his own pink

"Vinzenz Gurkenstrudel" caps when he orders enough!

Uli

Aquablue from Antwerp lists Mundorf and Audyn and may be a little cheap on S&H. Not sure though. Ask Benny.
