Default Shizuki capacitors?

Hello guys,

Ever heard of Shizuki capacitors?

As far as I am informed, there is no possibility to buy Shizuki capacitors in Europe. Recently I have received an information that Shizuki MIC-NA capacitors could be the best sounding capacitor for cathode bypass in my single ended amplifier. Check this link:

Is there a way I could buy 4 pieces of 0.47uf 250v capacitors to try out? Any help would be greately appreciated.

BR, mbede

I have some ShizukiŽs I bought many years ago from Hiragas lŽAudiophile Magazine in France. Can check values and how they are marked.

Isn't ASC "American Shizuki Corporation" (maker of motor-run caps (like the X386S) prized by audiophiles everywhere?).
Hey is for horses.

Yes, and I can highly recommend the X386S..
ASC is the American division of Shizuki..

You are right about ASC being American divison of Shizuki, but I cannot find these needed types of capacitors being sold in the USA.
