RE: Gee

Gee. Have you tried a small and large cap as an ac filter to see if a fundamental reason for commenting on this subject has any merit in your system according to your ears? Do you have any opinion on if you think it a bit safer to use a self healing cap that has a greater tendency to fail as an open in failure mode? The caps in question are the 900 series which is clearly in the data info. Now how often do you see two different data sheets on the same part with this kind of difference? Pointing out that I read that they were not UL approved was not to say they they passed no safety standard, they obviously did. Please keep on posting your potentially useful suggestions to help people get better sound with little effort or expense. Maybe you can tell us all why o why Kemet and other capacitor makers make many sizes of EMI filtering caps from very small all the way up to 10uf. I don't see any engineer from Kemet telling me I'm deaf and full of shit for suggesting larger caps. How many times larger is 10uf than .01uf? You can use 2.2uf if you like.
