In Reply to: RE: K40y-9 capacitors - highest possible voltage rating for best sound? posted by Michael Samra on April 03, 2017 at 22:34:16
Thank you for responding. Yes it sounds good, but it is a little dry and lacking in bass extention. The thing I really like about it is that it is focused and relativly fast for a paper oil. It must be well damped. With more bass it would have been very good.
I love K40Y caps to death as it is my favorite cap along with the Vitamin Q.
I much prefer them in the interim stages of an amp and preamp,along with driver to output stages of amp.
The reason I say try the Russian teflons is,they a very similar sonic flavor in a lot areas of the K40Y but it would no doubt better if you use the teflons in the output of a preamp.They are cheap to try and I have s feeling you will like these caps.

Great caps! I use 1KV rated, exclusively in amps. The 400VDC rated one go into guitars, only because I have some fit issues with guitars.
K40Y-9 caps, Vintage Jupiter, and Dynami-caps have become my standard go-to, in most vintage amp restorations.
