A blog about the journey of a DIY Audio enthusiast who doesn't care too much of the 'esoteric' ultra-priced commercial hifi equipment. I may be wrong, some or most of the time, but hey, it's my journey and I welcome you to share with me on that journey. Currently interested in headphones, open baffle speakers, full range drivers, tube amps and Pass Lab Class A designs.

Russian Capacitors KBG
Here are two big Russian NOS KBG capacitors I piece up for my projects. Rated at 1000V, these should be plenty safe to use on supplies as high as 800V. These will be the input cap for any power supplies I will be building in the future. They are heavy, and feel very robust. Not the CF card in comparison for size.
From what I can gather on the Internet, they are Paper-in-oils, and have an aluminum foil (not metallized). They are glass sealed and enclosed in a metal body. These have the markings OCKBG-MN. Not 100% sure what the OC and the MN means.
