[sdiy] SSI2144 filter caps

It's worth noting the MC-202 and SH-101 use bog standard ceramic caps for their filters (C48-51)!



I have 2 Serge Res EQs, one with styrene throughout and one with a mix of ceramic and film caps. Both sound great.

Right!  I tested C0G vs polystyrene in a hi-performance VCO some time ago and they behaved identically, as far as I could tell.  More recently, I tested both in my low-leakage S/H experiments and was able to verify leakage down into the low fA region for both types.

Didn't Ian Fritz teach us that NP0 is just as good as polystyrene?
(Provided you can obtain a cap of the correct value of course.)

Right now all I can find is this message in the archives:

If Ian has more to say I would love to hear it...
