Black Gate Capacitor Price List

Firstly I would like to categorically state that any rumours about Black Gate capacitors being unavailable or discontinued are totally misguided, malicious and incorrect. Audio Note is currently the sole source in Europe that holds any significant range of values in stock, we literally use thousands in production as we are the first company to realize the tremendous benefits that Black Gate capacitors offer. We are to date the only high-end audio company to incorporate Black Gate capacitors consistently in our finished products.

There are very few audio parts that promise a guaranteed improvement when replacing practically any other part, but this is what the Black Gate capacitors actually do. Exchanging any electrolytic capacitor anywhere in the circuit of an amplifier or on the crossover of a speaker will greatly improve the sound quality. We are working on some guidelines as to where how and which types of Black Gates to use in different circuits. The first such technical guideline is available now and is called Improving your CD Player and can be obtained by sending a stamped addressed envelope to us requesting this leaflet. All Audio Note Level 2 Signature products use Black Gate Electron Transfer in critical signal/ power supply areas.

It is very important to note that all Black Gate capacitors take time to charge up or stabilize when first put in the circuit, depending on the type and application this maturing process can be between 100 and 300 hours.Black Gate call this the idling process. We feel, however, that this process takes longer!

The high voltage power supply capacitors type SKz have been replaced by an even better version, the WKz type, unfortunately the price has increased substantially as well, so we have purchased a large stock of the SKz's (in fact most of the SKz type that Black Gate had in stock), so I am leaving them on the price list until we run out of each item. In the meantime we have introduced the Cerafine high voltage capacitor range as a cheaper alternative.

Please note that the price list for the Black Gate capacitors is a guideline only, due to the continuous strengthening of the Japanese Yen it is impossible to publish up-to-date prices so please ask for the current price when placing your order.
