Jantzen Audio Silver capacitors are possibly the most detailed caps on the market. These caps are constructed of a specially wound metallized polypropylene, high purity silver leads for the absolute best signal transfer, resin-sealed end caps to protect against humidity, and flame-retardant tape wrap.
- Capacitor foil: Metalized (ZnAl) polypropylene foil
- Dielectric insulation: Polypropylene film
- Terminal leads: Pure silver
- Capacitance tolerance: +/- 2%
- Signal direction: None (non-polarized capacitor)
Jantzen Audio 001-0686 | 15 µF | 2% | 800 V | Silver Z-Cap
The Silver-Z Cap offers extremely high performance, but still at a reasonable price point. Highly recommended for tweeters and mid-range application for high-end passive speakers and also as coupling capacitors in tube and power amplifiers. Super MKP double foil design, where four times as much foil is used per microfarad, compared to single foil MKP capacitors. Compared to single foil MKP capacitors, the Silver Z-Cap is on a higher audiophile level, where even finest nuance improvements can be heard. Nitrogen filled instead of dielectric fluid, offering more foil per capacitor and eliminating risk of evaporation. An extremely well made and precise MKP capacitor with a tolerance on capacitance of only +/- 2%. The difference between the Silver and Superior Z-Caps are that the lead-wires for the Silver Z-Caps are made from pure silver. The Silver Z-Cap has slightly softer sonic presentation than the Superior Z-Cap.
All Jantzen Audio Z-Caps are nitrogen filled, which means that you get more foil per capacitor and no risk of the evaporation that can occur in oil/dielectric fluid filled capacitors. Highly recommended for use as a high-end tweeter capacitor or as a coupling cap in an amplifier. For the best performance, signal should enter on the left-hand side (From reading direction).
