#1 Ebay seller egekecu - capacitor store

Post by Max N »

I ordered some Nichicon LF from this seller. I received them quickly and they were well packaged.
I have tested these on an ESR meter and they measure to spec - there is no doubt that these are genuine Nichicon LF.
They do have short leads, but the seller states this in the description and shows it in the photo. He has other LF for sale that have long leads.
I just thought I would set the record straight. I've edited my post in the other thread but I figured it was unlikely that people would go back and read it.
It looks like Oscons are being discontinued, so these Nichicon LF might be a good alternative. I guess we have to thank the motherboard tweakers :)

I'm so glad you posted this! I bought 4 Silmics from this seller about three weeks ago to use as cathode bypass caps in my QQV amp and, as you say, they arrived quickly and looked Kosher, so having no way of measuring them other than by ear I read the Ebay Caps thread with increasing concern, relieved only by the fact that they caps did seem to make a significant improvement. I should learn to trust my ears....

Sorry to have caused you worry Shane.
I am a big fan of Silmics - they are the best I have tried for cathode bypass.
