    Hello All, Anyone have recommendations for mail order shops with cheapest surplus prices on polypropylene and polystyrene capacitors in quantities of 20 to 100 ea? ...Anything in the 1% to 10% tolerance range is fine by me, since I'll test & sort thru the bunch. I need values of polystyrene from ~1000pf to .1uF and polypropylene from ~.1uF to 10uF (even 20-100uF dream). I don't need high voltage types since these are for opamp filter circuits. Thanks Much, Steve

    I think you can order the GE caps (2uF or 5uF not sure) from Madisound for ~$.50 in quantities of 100+ (or was it 200+???????) You get the point, check with Madisound [​IMG]

    I was under the impression you didn't want to use poly caps in opamp filter circuits. I thought ceramics were preferred? I know electrolytics are no-nos.
