Default Kemet A700 ALuminum Organic SMT caps?

Does anyone have experience with these? They look like
small SMT versions of OSCONs. I think the max value is
something like 150uF/10V. They come in roughly the
same shapes as SMT Tantalum caps

I haven't used the Kemet caps but I have used the equivalents ones from Panasonic and CDE and I find them to be excellent. When tweaking gear where you need a good capacitor such as FM tuner output or cd player output, I find them to be very good sounding. I like them much better than black gates, which have an undeserved reputation for good sound.

I bought some of the CDE's sometime ago but have not used them yet. they look fantastic specwise. if you go to CDE's website they have curves to look at, or did at any rate.

If your planning on buying quite a few, you can order a sample first and test them out..
