Jensen capacitors are mentioned in Paco's crossover update for 1.6's and listening update.

The link to Jensen there is dead -

I found a Jantzen Audio Capacitor company are they the same just renamed?

Both brands of capacitors are still being sold, but Jensen maybe NOS until quantities are gone.

"... pcX was advised on September 1st, that JENSEN Capacitors, after nearly 100 years in business, is ceasing operations by year end. All their cap manufacturing machinery has been purchased by DUELUND AUDIO, and will be located to their new manufacturing facility. The JENSEN brand will end...-but, capacitor manufacturing in Denmark will continue ! ..."

"... JDM stands for Jensen Domestic Market, a tribute to the closed Jensen capacitor manufacturing company that used to make the capacitors for Duelund. ... The JDM series are the replacement for the discontinued Duelund Tinned Copper Foil Precision Bypass Capacitors ..."

Jensen is/was operating under a DBA: A/S Jensen Capacitors

Many caps brands are made in the same facility.

If you want to drive yourself nuts, give this review thread a read.

I have tried the Jantzen Superior Z XO caps. HumbleHomemadeHiFi offered parts matching. The caps I got from them where matched to 1/10th of a uF (e.g. 10.1uF to 10.1uF) so much closer than the manufacturer's +/-2%.
