Default MDL capacitors

Has anyone had any experience with these capacitors from MDL?

Can’t find it anywhere besides the manufacture webpage.
But similar would be this one

Wow, that’s very similar, good find.
Looked like something that might be worth a try, if they were readily available, that is.

"Luxury" capacitors?
Likely wild, overpriced, and nothing special about them.


I fail to see the draw of such things in electronics, other than the hype, high-end costs, thus giving the illusions of superiority.
And I've been a service tech for decades.

Interesting claim, HF becomes both sharp and smooth... Meaningless waffle, show me the specs like self-resonant frequency, ESR, ESL...

I don't buy into those "claims" that those snake oil cap-makers seem to use as bait towards the uneducated crowds.
Because those types are easily swayed with smooth-talking marketers.
All those terms of "air", smooth, soundstage, speed, sparkle, etc etc etc, are nothing but BS when it comes down to real electronics fundamentals.
When you know, as I do, and have been trained, on the fundamentals of electronics, (in a real classroom with real instructors) before all this internet-based propoganda, you'll just laugh and ignore the hyped up "spices" added on to things, to make them sell to the unwary.


A while back, I read a sensible paper written on various capacitors by an accredited authority, who's background similar to mine did an extensive review of capacitors.
Poly, paper/oil, ceramic, etc, those esoteric brands included.
His findings explained all the "magic" properties that were simply marketing talk and fiction.


A capacitor is merely two plates seperated by an insulating layer, but to put a name like "Mundorf" on it apparently makes it better than a Sprague?
LOL!

There are plenty of sound differences when using standard parts vs more expensive/boutique parts.
Just allow yourself to hear them.

But remember to keep it ears only. No peeking.
