Help with technics se-m100 rebuild!

Posted 3rd November 2009 at 07:24 AM by Jo90

Hi, I hope I have this right- I am new to this! I am dusting off my electronics by rebuilding an old technics se-m100 power amplifier (1989) as a practice run (before upgrading my marantx cd-80). I bought this very cheaply, but it sounds rather thin compared to my old sugden's! I have had difficulty getting exact capacitor matches for the electrolytics in terms of voltage (not capacitance). I have ended up having to use 10v or 16v capacitors, in place of originals rated at 6.3v. Equally I have had to replace capacitors rated at 25v with those at 35v. They are nearly all in the signal path, and so I have used elna cerafines or silmics. Is this going to be OK?- I couldn't see why not, but, am I missing something obvious? In principle it is quite a nice amp (dual mono, big power supplies), so even though this is a practice run, I don't want to break it! Apologies for the ignorance of the question and thanks for any help!
