Best choice for in/out caps Aleph p 1.7
Please help me, last two weeks I spend looking for good quality capacitors for input and output (10uf) in P 1.7. I'm completely confused. Is it good to use high voltage ones? Please suggest a brand or anything that will provide me with most transparent sounding caps.

Coupling Caps
To my ears, once the values go over 2 - 3 ufd the best coupling caps are Black Gate NX. The 10 ufd plastic caps have always sounded a lttle rubbery in my systems.

What about VISATON 10uF MKP 250V? I have 16 pcs of them but haven’t tried them yet. What I see as a drawback - they're rather big.

they're rather big.
What do you think is the size of Wima MKPs? (i would not wonder if they are from the same manufacturing line)

I use wima MKS, have no problems, and they are smaller than MKP but still not really small. But much less expensive.
