Are there any sonic differences btn K42Y2 & K40Y-9 PIO caps

218.103.149.62

I find there are K42Y-2 and K40Y-9 PIO capacitors and they seems to be made by the same materials. Are there any sonic differences between them. Please share your experiences.

The description said:
"The K42Y-2 are high quality PIO capacitors made for military. The conductor is made of aluminum foil and the dielectric is oil saturated paper, glass sealed in a metal body. These capacitors provide excellent sonic characteristics, high tolerance is kept within a wide temperature range."

"The K40Y-9 are high quality PIO capacitors made for military. The conductor is made of aluminum foil and the dielectric is oil saturated paper, glass sealed in a metal body. These capacitors provide excellent sonic characteristics, high tolerance is kept within a wide temperature range."
