The risks are small, the prognosis very good. There may be some pain immediately after, but the end result should be very rewarding.

Where in the circuit are you using these russian caps exactly?

The paralleled Teflons are the inter-stage 100nF. Three parallel silver micas to ground for the 47nF, one to ground for the 16nF.

the psu for TT are another question to answer! a simple caps to derive 70-90Vac for motor.......is important isolate the motor from 220v ? (x2-common mode coke-x2)

Great sound. Open, natural, very informative, and deep, vibrant.
Compared some vinyl to same CD albums. The CDP is a Marantz upgraded with all the stuff in the digital forum here on DIY com about it... There is a piano, seeming well and nice on CD. Then you play the same on vinyl. Well, you realize that the first one was a toy piano without any enclosure. Etc, etc.

That is precicely what I am searching for Salas.

Actually my severely modded CD53 has much more body than the TT.

I really need this jfet RIAA.

Maybe I should try to do one PTP as Lee seems to be too busy right now.

Already ordered the 170BL and need to source the RIAA caps.

Do you have some spare caps I could use ?

Salas do you have a shunt for motor?

Yes, carbon fiber mat, upgraded ZI spec arm, Origin Live DC motor and DC PSU. So no AC tricks. But if you ask in general, build a Geddon. 500VA trafo good 0.2uF cap for 90 deg phase lag. I have listened with just isolation trafo and yes, the best benefit goes to AC motor TTs.

I have thought about shunt for DC motor. Problem is that they ask for 2-3V and Mosfets open higher. So I must do it with BJT.

Music's over.

Sorry, I don't keep any more caps than I use for one build at a time. Maybe someone else has. Ebay has right now I think.
