    Hi guys, so i made a "bass preamp by rod elliot".
    And there's a capacitor required and its gonna be a 4.7uf polyster.
    So i used 5pcs of 1uf mylar caps.
    Well my project is working...
    Just wondering if it could have sounded better if i used a polyster film caps wich is known for high accuracy.
    (I couldnt find a polyster film in our local electronic stores)
    What do you think guys?
    Would there be a difference?
    Thank you so much!!

    You are free to obsess over infinitesimal differences in sound to your hearts content.
    But for all intents and (rational) purposes it makes no difference.

    (waiting for the audiophiles to light up the boards now...)

    Mylar is a brand of polyester.
    From Wikipedia:
    And from another source (http://www.radio-electronics.com/info/data/capacitor/polyester-capacitor.php):
    Don't perseverate over the brand of polyester used.

    You should worry more over if your wires are "oxygen free" quality.
