Testing the New ‘No Name’ Capacitor

I believe you still remember this one? I think it’s time to give a short review of it. As comparison, I will use Jensen 4-Pole capacitor as both has same capacitance (470 uF). Caveat: The Jensen 4-Pole has been used...

Jensen Copper Foil Paper-In-Oil Ceramic Tube Capacitor

Jensen has 4 types in their Copper Foil Paper-In-Oil line-up capacitor. Actually, they are same capacitor, but only has different chassis or enclosure. Unfortunately, the different in enclosure produces different sound (and eventually different price). I’m not saying the most...

Burn-in Rig Before Battle

I plan to compare some capacitors from Jensen and one from Audio Note. The two from Jensen are Jensen Copper Foil Paper-in-Oil (Paper Tube) and Jensen Copper Foil Paper-in-Oil (Copper Tube). From Audio Note, I have Copper Foil Mylar-in-Oil (I...

Soon, Another Shootout: Paper Tube vs Copper Tube

I acquired another varian of Jensen Film Caps, the Copper Tube. Basically, Jensen has 4 enclosure models, the cheap Aluminum Tube, then the Paper Tube, Copper Tube, and Ceramic Tube. So far, I have no interest (or budget) to try...

Jensen Axial Electrolytic Capacitor

At the end or journey where good electrolytic caps is getting more difficult to be acquired, I think I have to consider some alternatives. I love Black Gate and Elna (Cerafine and Silmic), but those are getting rare and expensive....
