In Reply to: RE: Caps with "Vloss" such as paper dielectric = "generally euphonic" ? posted by tube wrangler on April 30, 2017 at 21:02:10
OK. I'll bite. What are some of the German Caps that are better? I assume that they are better as they are "neutral?" but how would do we define that and however it is that they are better.
Dennis uses Mundorf in his amps, probably in wild positions like cathode bypass, unless I'm mistaken. Pretty cool really.
I've not had success with Mundorf to date and sing with the chorus that they emphasise treble slightly; they did not sound as I expected. They probably work very well in otherwise rolled off, warm-sounding systems.
I'll be trying ClarityCap (C)MR and AuriCap XO metalised film when I can't afford or fit true foils.
Yes, I know, this stuff is highly subjective and dependent on one's perspective...

I suppose Mundorf and Audyn are the first that come to mind.
