Home Tweakers' Asylum

Tweaks for systems, rooms and Do It Yourself (DIY) help. FAQ.

RE: If you had taken the time

They are not UL or CSA certified. Kemet says they are not needed. They are vigorously tested by others. Looks like they are tested to at least 8000 volts in a pulse test. Probably a lot higher pulse tests than in the self healing caps. I stand by my assertion that for audio that a "higher quality cap" and a much larger cap will sound better to many people able to perceive what I believe is a not so subtle difference. This is what a tweaker's forum is about, IMO. I am not the only person who has perceived this. What ever you do don't try it for yourself. That would be a BIG mistake, would be very time consuming and expensive. And if, in the extreme unlikelihood you heard a positive difference you would be then subject to cognitive dissonance. We wouldn't want that, now would we? On the up side if you didn't hear something positive you could come back and try to make me look bad again. Much more important to some on Tweaker's Assylum than, shall we say, tweaking. Tweaking on tweaker's assylum, wow, what a concept. T456
