RE: How long does a Russian PIO cap to break-in?

Kan
The K40Y-9 and other paper in oil caps like the Jensen and the Sprague Vitamin Q will continue to improve over the course of a few months. In what kind of amp and in what section of the amp or preamp did you use the caps? If you put them in an area where there is very little DC voltage across the cap to assist with break in,it will take much longer.Give us some more info.
