The MCap® EVO was designed in 2012 as the successor of the RXF to facilitate utmost musical enjoyment even in small spaces on a limited budget. The PP capacitor film used here is first metallised with the thickest possible aluminium layer, then wound precisely into innovative EVOLUTION winding geometry and then potted by hand into special casings.
- Compact and cost-effective MKP-types
- Made in Germany
- High voltage rating

MCap® EVO are metallised PP film capacitors based on the innovative EVOLUTION winding technology, which was launched in the RXF series (Radial eXtra Flat) in 2005. Its main feature is its unusually narrow and high capacitor winding. This geometry produces two acoustically clearly perceptible advantages compared to traditional, easier-to-manufacture MKPs. One advantage is that the shortest, low-loss signal routes as well as particularly large contact surfaces are ensured (and thus extremely low residual resistance ESR); the other advantage is that an extremely large number of windings are parallel-connected, minimising inductivity (ESL). In addition, they are moulded by hand according to the highly precise winding process in specially developed, compact housings. This prevents the winding from vibrating and microphony effects on a sustained basis. In the sound pattern, all these special features are perceived through sound-quality liveliness, nuanced, transparent dynamics as well as outstanding authenticity and stereophony.
These features are reflected in the music playback with colorful livelihood, remarkable micro dynamic alongside enhanced transparency, authenticity and stereophony. In addition,0 the MCap® EVO is characterised by low tolerances, compact dimensions, low costs and the highest standards of safety in use (self-healing). It’ s asymmetrical leads make it possible to assemble it in a classic, horizontal style or vertical; the shorter lead also indicates the capacitor’s outer foil.
