Default Panasonic TS HA vs BHC Slit-Foils

Hi!

I'm building 2 power supplies for a dual mono setup each with 20mF capacitance per rail. I can do this with 2 10000uF 63V Panasonic TS-HA or one 22000uF slit foil per rail. Which cap should I go for? Are the slit-foils worth the extra money?

Thank you.

Yes, they are better than most "normal" lytics. Less technical sounding with better bass and smoother high frequencies, just more musical. But, as you said, they are quite a lot more $, especially when you need more than 2 of them.

What about reliability, they're only rated at 80șC. Is it a concern?

Thanks.

I never had any issues with temperature; depends where you want to install them. Most transistor amps are below 50 C internally.
