is that true that Sprague ATOM caps are less good now ?
cause i'm about to buy many electrolitic caps , most to service some of my amps and a few spares but i noticed the price difference between TAD ans sprague is really important.
i have always heard in the past those sprague caps were good but if their actual quality isn't as good, maybe it's better to buy some TAD.
i'm surprised TAD caps are said to be F&T, they don't seem to be the same caps visualy (but who knows !) .
i read the TAD gold caps are made in China but i don't know if it's true !
i've been looking for some infos on several websites about electrolytic caps but despite everybody has his word to say, i haven't heard any recordings showing a difference between the different brands (LCR, F&T, JJ, ARS, Sprague, Ruby, TAD, Illinois...) !
some seem to favour LCR , like ****** (i directly put the stars as his name seems to be sensored here ! LOL) , who seems to prefer them over the other brands, when some other like Ted Weber, seem to say LCR's are not good ! LOL
i found an article were they seem to say that electolytic caps are "bad" components anyway :http://www.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/~reese/electrolytics/
that's certainly the part for which i haven't been able to made up my mind about the quality / tone differences (as i didn't make any tests to compare these ) between the different brands
