It's my first post. Got a question, as diyers we all go to great lengths
to match resistors, transistor etc for our projects right but I have not
come across any articles about matching capacitors be it film or e caps.
Generally tolerance is given at +- 20 % but from my understanding this
tolerance only refers to voltage so does this applies to capacity as well and
what about esr do caps vary that much in tolerance. This might sound
goofy but I do notice that SQ is affected when changing caps of the same
brand, same voltage & same capacity. So much so that even sound
stage is affected too and this is happening after 50 hrs of burn in. These
caps are audiophile caps & not the el cheapo types. Would be great if some
experts here can shed some light to this
