Capacitors come in many different quality grades. To help you to determine which capacitor is suitable for a specific application we have put together the table below. Please note: Since these capacitors are bipolar, polarity is of no importance!

apacitors with special dielectric:
Duelund CAST
The construction builds on the Duelund Virtual Stack Foil design. In addition the proprietary WPIO dielectricum is used which necessitates several days of impregnation under high pressure.
apparatus capacitors:
Mundorf M-Lytic
capacitors for amplifiers, which contain a plus- and a minus pole. They are not for crossovers but for tube or transistor amplifiers and power supplies.

The MKT capacitor's dielectric medium is polyester foil. For high-end applications MKP and tin foil capacitors are used, employing polypropylene as dielectric medium. In this case you should have a look at Mundorf MCap Supreme, Supreme Silver/Gold and ClarityCap PWA, PX, SA, CSA, ESA, MR, CMR or even DTAC.
