In Reply to: RE: Which 0.1uF polypropylene bypass caps? posted by petercapo on July 02, 2017 at 18:18:19
But not as much of a difference as bypassing vs not bypassing. I use Auricap XO in this application very often, because they're small and do outperform similar metallized polypropylene caps I have tried. (For example, I would NOT use Solen Fastcaps.) Auricaps are fine but not exactly a magic bullet.
What else do you like that is small in size for this application?
but they're not so "small". Also, REL RT, which ARE small.
I agree with Lew. Very audible differences between the type (and brand) of cap used. But define "small."
I like the Jensen copper foil/oil caps in this application. Have tried several different types and brands (Kimber poly, Audio 1 PIO, Auricap poly, and a couple others) and prefer the sound of the Jensens. I use a .22 uF (630v) value though. Not what I'd personally define as small....but don't know how much room you have to play with.
"Small," in this case, means I perceive some of the Panasonic polypropylenes to be smaller than many if not most of the boutique class of polypropylenes across a range of values. And, among the boutique polyprops, I seem to think the Auricap XO is smaller than average. Feel free to correct me if I have that wrong, but that's the scale I am thinking of when I say "small." I do have some space limitations.
are no longer on my radar. Too many got leaky on me; one got leaky, and that resulted in a blown output tube.
