RE: If you had taken the time

You didn't mention the specific cap in the text. Technically the specific Kemet cap is a safety cap. I read that they are not UL approved. They are not self healing. In failure mode they have a tendency to short as opposed to open in failure mode and over time they can or do become unstable. I myself would never use one of these because #1 they are not self healing,#2 IMHO it is very unlikely that a ceramic cap would sound as good or better than a metallized PP cap and #3 they are, In my experience and other close observers experience larger caps sound better so I wouldn't begin to consider something this small in value. I won't admit I was completely wrong about this but I'll throw in a partial amount of wrongness. Up to maybe 30% or so. T456
