The Continuing Saga of our Studio Amp Electrolytics
We previously covered building a great sounding Studio Amplifier from very affordable modules from eBay. We also covered the poor quality of the Electrolytic capacitors from China, despite what brand they may have on them.
Opening up the Amplifier again today shows that all of the Chinese supplied capacitors are failing, and the single good nichinon I replaced the worst one with last time is fine.
So we are ordering more nichinon 10,000uF 50V capacitors and will replaced the bulging ones when they come in from RS-Components.
