Noise?        Hiss?       Switch 'pops' ? &nbspaudioa

At MicroFarads, we get it! And we have the solutions!

You require components that create as little noise as possible, while providing that tone you're looking for. From Vintage Amps to the latest digital products (we won't get into that debate), you need a reliable supplier who can provide capacitors, resistors, switches, transformers, tubes, jacks/plugs, fuses, cables/wire and other audio parts that do the job right. And for the semiconductor crowd, we can provide diodes, transistors, bridge rectifiers, and more complex integrated circuits, from the old TTL/CMOS simple gates to the latest in microprocessors and memory. Class A through C... Single-ended and dual input...pure quality to sheer volume.

It  ALL needs to be heard without the annoying noise.

Need 60/70's era Vitamin Q? OK.&nbsp
Paper and oil, hermetically sealed? Sure thing.
Matched pairs for a balanced output? Yeah, we can do that too!
Tone Rolloff? (So many opinions.) We've got you covered.

Capacitors  (capacitor articles)

Capacitors are a funny thing when it comes to standard values. The "normal values" for the last 3
0 years&nbsp&nbspor so have all been multiples of 1.0,&nbsp2.2, 3.3, 4.7, and 6.8 (uF or pF). But we audio people know differently. Starting back in the 50's and 60's, it was not at all unusual for a cap to be 25, 50, or 240uF. At Microfarads, we have them or can get them. One-stop shopping.
