Vitamin Q VS Jensen
which one do you prefer between Vitamin Q and Jensen?
Some people claim that most of recently manufactured caps like Jensen are rubbish, compared to those good'ol mil spec. caps like Vitamin Q, which are extremly rugged and almost everlasting...
But some people claim that Vitamin Q is the "trash", compared to Jensen, because they are far too old and have a narrow frequency response, compared to Jensen...
In my eyes, Vitamin Q looks really rugged...
What do you guys think?
And are those "motor run oil caps" suitable for signal pass application as well?
Or are they only suitable for PS application?
I know that this should be posted on Components Forum but as you guys know, oil caps are mostly prefered for tube circuits...

Older PIO caps tend to sound great in the midband but seem to loose out on the frequency extremes making them sound hopelessly "romantic"....
Rugged they certainly are though.
