Sorry, but I have to disagree here! The old SIEMENS B32650 series of MKP capacitors are considerably (!) smaller than WIMA MKP10's of the same value and voltage rating.

However, I don't know if they're still available...

Edit: This also applies for the KP 1833 series by ERO/Roederstein.

Best regards!

There is EPCOS B32651-6 in same form factor and VISHAY types. Although WIMA MKP4 should be the equivalent since MKP10 is a double side metallized beefed up model.

F for Film/Foil, M for Metallised, and KP for Kunststoff (aka plastic) Polypropylene.
Similar rational build-up for the series code numbers.

Audyn true copper are very good sounding caps. I prefer them above Audio Note copper in oil caps.

Another great sounding and not so expensive capacitor is Mundorf EVO silver gold oil:
