Hi!

Have anyone dealt with JJ caps?
A friend of mine need some inexpesive caps for HT supply.
Please don't compare them to WKZs or Cerafines

Thank you!

Good caps. I use them for the output of my OTL headphone amp. Sound quite good.

Hi,

By far the best sounding electrolytic cap I ever heard.
They're not expensive and have a range that's ideal for tubes.

Recommended.

Default better than BG or ELNA??

well... how about to Black Gate or Cerafine's?

JJ's stuff has always been VERY good... i.e. ECC99 and 6922.

Hi, Frank -

Well, you've caught my attention. What is it, IYO, that is particularly outstanding about the JJ caps soundwise compared to other 'lytics?

Happy ears -

IME they sound cleaner, less distorted than other caps.
Somewhat closer to a filmcap with the added advantage of the bigger value.

Cheers,
