Miflex paper in oil caps
« on: January 12, 2016, 09:55:29 AM »
Anyone know anything about these caps? They look like they're modelled on Dueland cast to me.

I don't like that they leak oil after a while though (Duelund Cast). This is one of the best and most expensive caps in the world so build quality should commensurate. Oh well, even the VSF got problem last time, I guess this is expected (?).
Not all that matters can be measured, not all that can be measured matters.

Those remind me of the caps Jimmy was playing with, same twisted lead outs...kinda.

Maybe a variation of them?

The ones he played with are sectional by the look, but otherwise, a similar look, more than others that i have seen.

I could be wrong.

I've just bought 0.1uf miflex caps for bypass purposes in my tube preamp. Will show pics when they are installed!

Interesting did you get the copper or aluminium. I love trying capacitors.

Mate wanted me to steal the signal early in his Rotel player passing it through some quality caps like I had done in my Marantz, the Rotel is a better implemented TDA1541 player than many of the cheaper ones, black gates throughout, .22uf decoupling caps around the DAC chip and a more symmetrical circuit from the DAC chip to the RCAs.

I should have snagged one of these instead of my CD65.

Anyway, used some 1uf Miflex Copper Paper Oil caps, only around 10 hours up so far but already starting to open up a little and more detail evident compared with first hour.

Will be interesting to see how they progress while I still have it with me. Edit: I know of one guy at least that says he likes these better than the Jupiter Copper's.

Data i am not a big fan of the Jupiter Copper's, the one i used had silver lead outs, good but not great. But its all so system dependent.

Hay, Steve, was just a reference, only one I had :)

While I thought Jupiters were alright when I used some, I much preferred Duelund Copper VSF caps, unfortunately very expensive now  :'(
I miss that rich layered bass and sweet mids the VSF's have  8)

I have some .1uf KPCU-01 I was to use as by-passes on some Andyn Copper's in my CD player's output, won't get around to trying them for a couple of weeks now though.

The Miflex are in as bypasses over already run in Andyn Copper Foils in the CD-60. only around 15 hours on them but from the get go they removed the harshness from the character of the Andyn's, not that they were bad, just taken a step forward in a few ways having the Miflex in there. I'll wait for around 50+ hours before maybe other observations.

Edit: Not really able to speak on differences with the Miflex really, It's a different player than previously, I'd also need to be using a single cap same value of each to make a proper evaluation. Have also changed some resistors in my amp.
