I would like to try some of those Rike Audio S-caps.   Maybe after I get rest of system sorted.

Or this one Tuyen, Jupiter HT Copper Foil, Paper and Wax , see: http://partsconnexion.com/capacitor_film_jupiter_ht_copper.html

I have heard their aluminium version, not the flat stacked, and they are very good, very musical although it can be a bit bright if not careful. I reckon the copper version would be an improvement  :)

Nice! Thanks for the heads up Wil.  The Jupiters look more attractive than the Rike S-Caps.  I like the thought of Copper over Aluminium.   Plus  $60US  for a 0.22uF cap is probably close to the limit of how much I'd be comfortable spending and still able to admit it's just for 'fun'  :)

Spending hundreds on a cap and things start becoming too 'serious' !  8)

PS. I like the review: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/diy/0514/jupiter_copper_foil_paper_wax_capacitor.htm

Yep, all reports indicate they could be very good and the price is not too bad. I'll try them next time. Please report your experience if you don't mind. Cheers  :)

  Some of these reviewers are a worry. This statement from this review is a problem

In fact, Jupiter lays out its own magic mix of excellent color and richness on top of the unusually high clarity and transparency, which many Teflon capacitors struggle with, save for perhaps the wonderful Vcap copper Teflon capacitor.

Well, they also say Duelund Cast is the best cap on Earth.  ::)

I am sure we take reviews with a grain of salt.

Anything subjective an audiophile/reviewer writes can be a worry Steven :)

The Vcap copper teflon caps no good?   I briefly tried the the tin teflons but found them too 'dry' and thus unnatural.  But the much cheaper V-Cap OIMPs I found OK.  Less 'dry', but then again, a bit veiled.    Bad synergy with the system at the time (IMO).
