Would it be good to put Black Gates N series for input and Solen or WIMA for output. I think that input caps should be much better than the output ones in P 1.7. Any suggestions on this!

In case you really belive electrolytics are (good) capacitors - do so.

I will not.

Let me pour some snakeoil. I belive that BG N type caps are much better than those Wimas. BG N caps are not your usual electrolytcs, but special blend that outperforms all the other electrolytics in coupling applications. I prefer them even to Jensens and Hovlands caps.

PS: If you check percyaudio.com catalog, this is what he writes about those caps:

"Unrivaled performance in a unique graphite impregnated electrolytic design with ESR 1/5 to 1/20 that of
ordinary electrolytics, minimal phase delay, and extremely low noise floor, exceeding -160dB for some models.
No other electrolytic compares for low distortion, sonic purity, and extremely long life (up to 10X other electrolytics)."


He also had this piece of info posted on his site previously, but I guess it was way too much snakeoil so he removed it.

Yeah, Siemens MKV is one of the few caps that are better than BG N for coupling.

In a couple of weeks I will show new Aleph P 1.0 here.

All coupling caps will be huge cans Siemens MKV

It will use Siemens Sikorel 125 PS caps and Elna ladder type attenuator.
