Just arrive, could be my last “considered high end” capacitor… I welcome you, Audio Note Copper Foil Mylar in Oil 0.47uF/630Volt.
I do love the beautiful elegant copper appearance from this capacitor. It just wonderful and good looking (maybe I’m too bored with “brown paper” from Jensen and Duelund). How does this thing sound? Will see, later, don’t expect me to test it soon, since quite busy these days.
A little comment from me. The leads are too fragile, not rigid – compared to Jensen, Duelund, or one of the stiffest leads ever, the Mundorf. But this perhaps due to the usage of 99.99% pure silver leads by Audio Note. Just treat her well (never bend the leads too hard or frequently change the leads orientation), I think she will be just fine.
