Audio Note
Electrolytic Audio Capacitors



In September 2014 Audio Note started releasing their new range of exclusively designed and manufactured electrolytic capacitors. The first models available are the Audio Note (UK)™ Standard Electrolytic Audio Capacitor’ and the Audio Note(UK)™ KAISEI Audio Capacitor.



Audio Note (UK)™ Standard

The Audio Note (UK)™ Standard ranges represent the starting level in our new range, we have found them to provide considerably better sound quality than any other currently available high voltage electrolytic capacitor, from any manufacturer. They achieve this excellent level of performance by combining a high quality electrolyte with the best available standard paper and a specially developed foil. The result is a 500 Volt capacitor of exceptional quality and price, suitable for use in any high voltage power supply application.

Audio Note (UK)™ KAISEI

The Audio Note (UK)™ KAISEI range has been developed over the past 4 years in collaboration with the engineering team at Rubycon (of Black Gate fame). Whilst working on our top of the line Black Gate replacements (which should be released in the second half of 2015) we realised that it would be possible to put together a range of more affordable capacitors that use all of the same materials as these supreme components (the same special electrolyte, foil and construction quality) apart from the hyper expensive and extremely difficult to produce Graphite impregnated paper, so the only difference between the KAISEI capacitors and the forthcoming Black Gate replacements is that the paper is not graphite impregnated in the KAISEI, otherwise they are the same.

Audio Note™ electrolytic audio capacitors


For the past 4 years Audio Note™ has been working with Rubycon to design and make Audio Note™ branded Black Gate replacement. These will not be exact copies of Black Gates as such, but they will represent what we consider to be a further development of the Black Gate technology (materials mainly) and therefore sound quality.
I think it is important to stress the fact that we at Audio Note™ still consider the Black Gate the finest sounding electrolytic capacitor ever made and we are therefore keen to reinstate and hopefully improve upon this level of quality before our internal stock of original Black Gates runs out.
