Announcement Regarding Ampohm Windings Ltd
according to http://www.audiocap.net/news119.htm, AudioCap Ltd have recently been informed that Ampohm Wound Products Ltd of Cornwall UK, has been put into receivership, and therefore no longer exists as a functioning manufacturer of automotive and audio capacitors.
AudioCap have sought to proactively minimise the impact of this event by the implementation of separate plans of action for audio and automotive capacitors.
Your Audiocap link no longer has a page. Is there any further info on Ampohm caps? The Tubestore still has inventory of this new line. I recently purchased a pair of the Polyester-in-oil caps to try in my preamp outputs. For speaker cross-overs, Homemade Hifi gave them very high ratings.
The Duelund VSF is noticably better then the amp ohm. The amp ohm
Is much richer at the cost of detail and separation.
After much experimenting th new. Jupiter flat stack Capacitors are starting
To get noticed Humble homemade Hifi did a review of the Jupiter HT caps
And rated a solid 11 .the flat stack are even better and will be reviewed
Soon rating around a 12. Jupitor verified these are better in loudspeakers,
As well as electronics they are also ht - high temperature.
I agree. I'm using the Jupiter flat stacks -Stacked Paper Beeswax Cryo Capacitors in my Cornwalls and couldn't be happier. very neutral. Previuosly I was using Sonicaps in the mid/high and it was a bit bright. Still using Sonicap for woofer filter. The Jupiter fixed that problem, yet kept the detail and resolution. This was blind tested.
The Jupiter flat stacks and Ht are excellent every bit as good if not better
Then the very expensive Mundorf
I usedthem in a preamp and flat stack in a speaker.
In my guitar I only use the Jupiter HT. gibson give the Sprague classic
Orange drop which is ok ,maybe a $3.00 cap. The .022 Jupiter is $28
But it s full deep image and expansive soundstage,the do take at least
300 hours to fully settle in on the 3.3 uf caps or bigger.
