Rike Audio S-Cap 2 Aluminium foil, paper in oil capacitors

Rike Audio S-Cap 2 Aluminium foil, paper in oil capacitors

Rike Audio are based in Germany, they manufacturer seriously high end valve equipment. To help them achieve the sound they wanted they decided to create their very own paper in oil capacitors. George Arsine and his team have updated the S-cap and have now launched the Rike Audio S-Cap 2. A truely powerful and dynamic sound over the entire frequency band. These are even better than the originals.

The S-Cap 2 is manufactured in Germany, employing experienced capacitor winders using high quality materials and modern methods of manufacture. Continuous advancement in a state of the art production and research environment ensure the constant top-level product quality. Primarily the S-Cap 2 is an Aluminium paper in oil with a double-layered dielectric, it is designed for 630Vdc rated use and has 15% tolerance. Every capacitor is tested with a test voltage of 1600Vdc.

The line on the body of the capacitor marks the outer foil end. This end should be wired to the signal input, DC & AC voltage end.



  • Capacitance range 0.01uF to 22uF
  • Temperature range -25 to +80°C
  • RoHS compliant, lead-free
  • Voltage rating 600Vdc
