Default Rebuilding the original clock circuit (Novice needs help!)

I was upgrading to a low jitter clock in my CD player, but I screwed up and fried something on the new clock board. I now want to simply reinstall the old oscillator, which had a resistor in parallel and an SMD capacitor to ground on either side. I still have the resister and oscillator but I need to replace the caps. The technical manual does not list their capacitance. Any idea what size caps I could put in their stead?

They could have been anything from 10 to about 100pF. I'd try a value of 33pF as a starting point.

Thanks for the help. I was advised to use 20 pF and that did the trick. It's a Rotel RCD-955AX

The originals were 47pF by the looks of things
