I think there are better caps than the Solens . .

Posted by John PA on June 30, 2012 at 17:09:03:

they can have a bright tinny sound. If they are used, bypassed with 10th value polypro works well and then I think they can do well. Just my opinion after working with the Solen in all types of gear. I advised them to Mike of Quicksilver years ago and he bought a bunch only to tell me they were terrible. I had told him they needed to be bypassed and then do a good job but for some reason he didn't want to do the bypass so he never heard what they can do. For an all in one cap though, there are others but it depends on available area of course.
