has anyone used auricaps and BG on their aleph 1.7?
 
I'm thinking of auricap 30uF (instead of 3x 10uf as the 30uF is much cheaper).

of course the BG will be much cheaper than the auricap.

thank you very much :)

And just about any industrial 30uF PP film cap will be cheaper than all of the above....and just as good as the best of them.

well I cringe at the thought of industrial grade caps in the signal path. :P

anyway, I respectfully request to please keep things in topic :)

on my layout for the aleph p 1.7 i have 1 30uF Auricap Capacitor, because accordingly with the resarche that i have made so far, these brand is one of the utmost neutral on the market.

Magura, i don't agree with you about the chepest caps sounding as good as the best aurricap or jensen or....whatever.

The caps...expecially dc blocking cap on the signal path are fundamental for the sake of the sound.

Try giving an ABX test of auricaps or whatever else cap you consider very high quality and good sounding, and for instance a Comar PP motor run cap a chance.......I have made such test and found no person so far whom was able to tell them from eachother.

....on the other hand, my wallet had no problem telling the difference

some motor runs are good though. I've use ASC MRs on the output of my tubed headphone amp.

But general statements such as "industrial caps will be as good as auricaps" might be hard to prove though.

how many industrial caps do I need to buy for testing?

It'll probably be safer (cheaper in the long run compared to testing different brands) to buy a good cap and be done with it :)


anyway, I respectfully request to keep things in topic. if you haven't used Auricaps, BG-N 47uF or Multicap metallized polypro (cheaper than auricap by almost half!), please stay out :)

Hello,
my aleph 1.7 is running with bg-n caps. Ive tried Mundorf mcap-zn before and wima mkp4, which are both polypropylene caps.The first with tin-foil and PP-foil, the second with metalized pp-foil. I didnt try auri till now.
I prefered the bgs because i dont like the audible hardness and pronounciation of the high frequencies, ive experienced with every pp capacitor i have tried. Its like the high frequencies are always the first part of the sound to hear, a bit faster than the rest.
For me the bgs sound nicer with no unevenness in the tonality. Like a small jensen for poor people;)
Of cause its just my own personal experience and you might think different.:)
