Here is what Steve has to say about his experience with V-Caps:

"The V-Cap Fluoropolymer is a very smooth sounding cap, but delivers the detail."...

"The (TFTF's) are ideal for tweeter crossover bypassing. They add top-end air."

"The V-Cap Oil-Cap is used in my Overdrive DAC for basic AC coupling. This DAC was reviewed by TAS: "...regardless of how I employed the Overdrive DAC I was aware that I was listening to the best USB DAC I had ever reviewed. "- Steven Stone, TAS Feb 2010"

"It (OIMP) delivers wonderful extended bass and smooth midrange, and has the advantage of being compact compared to other oil caps."
