Default Need Comment For Mundorf M-Lytic AG caps

I am interesting for the Mundorf M-Lytic AG (10000uf 63v) for replacement my old Sprague 81D (6800uf 63v) on my PSU.

Would anyone can tell me what is the sonic quality different in between Mundorf M-Lytic AG and Sprague 81D?

Some people said the Mundorf M-Lytic AG sound bright. It is ture?

I like the sound transperant with a good dynamic.

Hope someone here can help me to find out the best caps which may suitable for my need.

Thank you,


Tom

Hello Tom

For me is the best Lytic actual on production cap. It's difficult to describe it: voices are very good, full bass & delicate treble, a clear winner.

Cheers
Felipe

In the last couple of years my opinion on smoothing caps has changed a little bit.

I am coming to the conclusion that any commercial electrolytic can do as the first stage smoothing.
The local decoupling handles all the MF and HF current demands.
This leaves the smoothing as just a recharging energy source for the local decoupling.

Now the potentially controversial point of view, the change in my thinking:
An amplifier that responds by "sounding different" by changing the manufacturer of the same value smoothing capacitors has decoupling that is not working properly.
It is either in the wrong place, or the wrong values, or the wrong cap types, or a combination there off.

If that extreme opinion is valid, then it points to "sort the decoupling" rather than play with the smoothing manufacturer.

Is M-lytic HC better than any caps, like Epcos sikorel B41550, Rifa PEH169?
I'm mean about p/p...
They're very expensive caps, far away other electrolytic caps.

I would go with a reputable manufacturer instead, like Panasonic, Nichicon, Samwha, Chemicon, etc. Mundorf seems to be a hobbyist company preying on audiophiles with fancy talk. All without the expertise of the big boys.

Well, not true. While I am not a fan of Mundorf at all as I find the caps way overpriced, one has to note that one of the oldest and largest capacitor factories in Germany produces the caps for them.

I replaced nichicons with the mundorfs AG and they sound much better , more transparent , neutral
