I was wondering what the effect of using a capacitor like the Solen/SCR Fast Caps in the signal path of an amp would be. I noticed almost everywhere that sells the Solens, or anyone who talks about them in a deja.com search shows that the Solens are good for speaker crossover circuits or used as bypass caps in power supplies. But what about as signal capacitors (like for input coupling)? I'm trying to decide what kind of benefits or disadvantages there would be to using the Solens in my amp rather than the newer 716P SBE Orange Drops, which I've seen mentioned as signal capacitors usually. I've listened to the two, can -maybe- hear a difference between them, but couldn't decide which I liked better, so I used the Solens for the input coupling caps in my amp... now seeing over and over again that people don't usually use Solens for signal path caps, I'm wondering if there's some disadvantage to using them in this way?
