Seems that boutique item and time-nut might go together, if there was an actual performance advantage.  Besides, think of the bragging rights from some of this stuff.  It could be worse than audiophile craziness: My DMTD has capacitors made of genuine Lexan(r), not just any old polycarbonate, hand pressed to a thin film from the finest selected window glazing sheets using rollers machined from the finest steel puddled by English craftsmen in Sheffield using traditional methods.
