Default Using Vishay MKP 1837s along the Signal Path

Iíve been experimenting paralleling a bunch of Vishay MKP 1837s and placing them everywhere along the signal path and find them to sound GREAT. Extremely clean and detailed highs!

This may be a relatively inexpensive alternative to high-dollar Teflons.

Any thoughts, comments or similar experiences?

A brief followup: I'm finding that the Vishays can lack a lot of dynamics when overused up front, but I still think they are are working well as a part of the high pass crossover in my Maggies. I began with just one as a bypass and have been adding more and more of em. I'm up to 5uF worth of the .1uF Vishays, along with a 17uF Sonicap.

I first got the idea when visiting the following web site:
