    CMR caps are very good indeed. Better than MRs?... Well that would depend on where you put them. I have found that putting them in the HF makes the biggest difference.

    I like to get geeky now and then. But not had enough time in the recent months to really go in to it.

    MR caps do generally excell in mid and HF areas over ESRs but it's such a subjective issue as equipment can vary so much. I'm lucky enough to be totally happy with my system and so I have a good benchmark to test with.

    How that helps.

    I did originally have an ESA as the tweeter cap but when I tried the Mundorf I felt it was better - sufficiently to warrant altering the final design (the values were the same obviously).

    I thought, in the top end, the Supreme was a little more open and 'hear in to' than the ESA.

    Sure, yes I have replaced MRs with CMR's in the HF and found a slight improvement. I have also replaced with the same in mids and found hardly (if any) change.

    I've found that the HF to be more beneficial. Regarding Mundorf, I've yet to try that combo. I have some silver/gold oils which i need to out back in. They are probably the best caps for bass and clarity IMO... Well, at the moment.
