Default Best replacement for Black Gate WKZ?

Hi There,

we all know the Black gates (for example the high voltage 500V 100u+100u) are getting nearly extinguished so what does a DIY'er use instead of those very musical, high-end capacitor. For example I used them in a SE amplifer, in my preamps, in a PP KT88 amp. So please some recommendations....

Did by chance anyone already used the Mundorf High Voltage Electrolyte?

thanks, Jan

Yes, I did use the Mundorf, and is impressive. Very open and liquid sounding.

A nice sounding affordable HV cap is the Panasonic TSHA.
