Default Cap from Electronic Concept - The best in the world?

I have mentioned Electronic Concept before. Here is picture of this splendid but expensive cap.

How does it sound? I have no idea the the electrical performance is something else. Check current capability! Check the wires!

I have used them for years, as do lots of my famous audio designer buddies. They do sound very good. How much are you paying for them now?

In large quantities you can get them for a buck but <10, approx. 7-10 bucks.

Jocko: Have you used the Unlytics for power supply applications? If you did, what were the results (compared to a conventional electrolytic)?

If not, would you opine that these would be sonically closer to a film cap or to an electrolytic?

Many thanks in advance, jonathan carr

Sorry, ol' buddy, never tried them.

Per.....look for an e-mail from me. We can discuss what values we both use.

Why would high current capability effect the sound?
