The improved transparency performance of this pure aluminum foil capaitor is on the same high level as Super MKP Silver & Superior Z-Cap, but with a slightly softer tonal presence and less brightness / sheene / glare in comparison.
The Alumen Z-Cap will offer a more “neutral” presentation in the overall sound in certain crossover designs, and by “neutral” we refer to the focus will be shifted from what in some systems can be a somewhat overemphasized brightness when using a Super MKP capacitor, being replaced with a more even balance between the depth of the midrange and the presence of the tweeter.

Review by Mr. Troels Gravesen:
Due to the max. 100 volts DC voltage rating , we advice customers to be mindful when using Alumen Z-Caps for tube/valve and power amplifier application. For upgrading the coupling capacitors in amplifiers, we instead recommend choosing our Superior or Silver Z-Caps (Double-foil Super MKP capacitors).
