I suppose I'll jump out there and be bold enough to ask the questions others may be afraid to ask:

Are these rebadged Miflex caps? If not, and since they're in the same price range, how do your caps differ/compare to Miflex caps?

Newbie question:

Can these be used on any component (preamp, amp, DAC, crossover)?

Early B,

Thank you for asking the question.

speaker / cross over  voltage,  not  for high voltage electronics  circuits

Early, no , not   relabeled  Miflex caps,   these  were  done  from the  ground  up with high purity  copper  I believe  was sourced  from Germany

Will these be a good (albeit expensive) upgrade to the Sonicaps and Erse for the NX-Oticas?

Development of these actually started before the Miflex caps were brought into the US. These are US made caps.

These are also lower voltage caps and not as big physically as the Miflex caps.

They can be used in anything that is low voltage. So coupling cap positions or in a DAC is fine.

These look more like the Jupiter low voltage caps, but using even better quality copper than they use, is that correct?  If so, that's a HELL of a deal you have going on Danny.

Tyson -- you're probably in a great position to conduct a cap shoot-out between these, Miflex and Jupiters. Some of us are curious about the sonic merits of these caps.

Yes. The company that is making these caps once also made the Jupiter caps. So they are quite good and very experienced at making caps of this type.

You know, before the divorce I would have had the $$ to do it, but money is tight when you get divorced in CO.

I compensate by pulling my speakers halfway into the damn room any time I want to :P

I totally get it!  Maybe Danny will send some to his favorite S7 owner to try and report back to the other followers.   ;)

Oh, Tyson -- the fact that you could afford to get a divorce tells us you have plenty of money for these caps. Just do it, man, so we can hear your system vicariously.

If it made sense for me to do it, I would, but the number and values of the Copper Caps I need cost a few hundred dollars more than what I paid for my speakers. :o

If I understand this correctly - for the S7 you would need a 10 & 15 for each speaker to replace the 2 Sonicaps?

Congratulations!  What is the tolerance?  Lead material and gauge?  Did they use paper only, or paper and poly?

(Edit)Oops!  I did not see your other post regarding the lead material.  I could not tell that they were tinned leads in the pic.  I was just curious if you went with the 4/9s solid Silver like the Jupiters.  I'm still curious what gauge lead though.

Same Copper.
