I am just the opposite. I have had multiple Sony failing on me, but my Panasonic have held up reasonably well. The only Panasonic failed so far is a shortwave radio where the battery connection for somereason went south.
I was talking about Panasonic caps.
Their gear usually has plenty of them, but sometimes not so many.
The CD player I was talking about is a Telefunken.
My TV is Philips, and had a bad Panasonic cap.

Default off topic note to Grahamm

Drop me an email about hooking up a Digital out (S/PDIF or AES) for the XM units if you have not seen the hack yet. Significant improvement in sound.

Hi Peter,

You dont use the 0R22 resistors on the output?

I tried them but didn't hear any improvement, but the sonic signature of the resistor. My amps were tried in many different systems and so far, I didn't experience any problems because of lack of that resistor at the output.

This is probably old news to the more experienced builders here, but I just got the catalog of "Parts Express" (website here: ) and it is much more help than the typical Mouser/Digikey catalog. Their printed catalog is free. Mine arrived in about 10 days. Definitely worth getting.

They have a ton of audio DIY stuff - hundreds of different drivers, real "ports" for less than a buck, and other stuff. And their descriptions of the qualities of the different caps and resistors they sell was most helpful.

As soon as my chips come in (can't remember whether I ordered the ones that need silpads or not) I will place a Mouser and Parts Express order for the rest of my amp components!
