Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: Caps with "Vloss" such as paper dielectric = "generally euphonic" ?

Is it possible that a cap that sounds soft, compared to other caps, only does so because it's not adding high frequency energy (caused by non-damped ringing) that the other caps are?

I say the way to hear this for yourself is to place a cap in the signal path where you don't need a cap.

Does the cap (vs. no cap) change the sound?

Do damped caps (oil caps) sound more like a piece of wire compared to dry film caps?

If you have no point of reference then you can be fooled and the cap that is getting it right might sound soft to you while the cap that is adding high frequency energy might sound "clear and bright" to you and you think that's right because it "pleases" you but, in fact, it's totally wrong.

In your post you show no method for determining the true difference between the sound of capacitors. You just make pronouncements.

That gets old Dennis.
