RE: If you had taken the time

Ug, ceramic caps are not self healing at all as far as what I read from Kemet and other places. Of course they are fire resistant. Kemet in their literature doesn't seem all that enthusiastic about their use. They even have an alternative to ceramics that have a safer failure mode, see below link. These are rated Y but I myself don't like the idea of a short as a failure mode when used across the line compared to an open. Anyhow,as stated many times, this is mute. Larger caps sound better IMO and other's opinions. The larger caps, up to 10uf are made by Kemet for EMI suppression for a reason. And the reason is so audio folks can buy them, listen to them, realize how fantastic they sound and get back to Tweaker and tell him what a freakin genus he is. I rest my case, maybe.
