pcX is very proud to now be stocking both series of the V-Cap line of signal capacitors, probably the hottest cap line in today's DIY marketplace. Many feel it's the finest sounding line-up of caps, at any price !

pcX is the only other retailer (besides V-Cap themselves) offering these caps for DIY retail sales, in North America.  


The V-Cap TFTF *PTFE film and tin foil audiophile capacitors and OIMP series (Oil Impregnated Metalized Polypropylene)  film capacitors are the result of an extensive research and development project by a team of world-renowned experts in electrical engineering, chemistry, materials science, and some of the top minds (and "ears") in the audio industry.

OIMP Series (5% tolerance)

And selecting the best film was just one of many stages in the design and refinement process that led to the V-Cap OIMP series. Transferring the unique Variable Stage Quadrant Dielectric™ winding technology to the OIMP series was a stunning development on it's own, but even further progress was made by perfecting the actual oil impregnation process. This ensures the highest level of performance,

A few notes about the V-Caps:

These caps use 18 AWG Teflon-insulated, or bare solid copper leads. Because of the stiffness of these leads, extra care should be exercised when bending the leads for installation. Although the V-Caps are not polarized, many have found it is best to keep the lead orientation relative to the innermost and outermost foil consistent. The green lead (short lead on OIMP series) indicates the outermost foil, and should always be connected to the lowest impedance return path to ground in the circuit. In practice, this means the outer foil should be connected towards the plate of first stage, when used in amplifiers. If using as a bypass cap to ground, connect outer foil to ground. If using as a bypass cap from a signal to B+, connect outer foil to B+. Another way to identify is the “V” in the V-Cap label indicates “inner foil” side of the cap. Leads should be kept as short as possible, and the caps should be mounted securely. 3M double -sided foam tape and plastic ties work well for this. Avoid over-tightening with ties.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As V-Cap is already aggressively priced via it’s Quantity Discount Schedule, pcX does not “double discount” thru any other sales promotion, that may be currently running.
