Cyberdragon:
I'm looking for .01uF class Y caps to replace the death caps in an old radio...and found these "beauties"...

Paper-oil caps...in 2021...for "tone". :palm: :scared:

TBH, I don't care if audiophools fry their crap with this...I just hope that they don't leave these fresh bombs in something us sane people will end up with.

Audiophoolery aside, the originals lasted several decades, it's likely these will too.

And for 20 cents instead of 20 bucks I could get a ceramic or plastic cap that'll likely last a century.

xrunner:
Wait ...  :wtf:

How many do you get for $19.99?

ONE?

BrokenYugo:
I wonder if these are a custom run or some relabeled $5 commercial parts.
