Do you really need 1 farad of capacitance? I never thought I'd say this but... that sounds like overkill!

Glad to hear your sound is still coming along!

Can you please inform me what would be the best power rating to choose ?

Also, can you give me gidance to where can I find these resistors ?

Regards

Well, since the choice is between 2W or 5W, it shouldn't be that difficult . I get them from Percy Audio or Partsconnexion, both in the U.S.

Nah, it's that extra 2700pF that does it

This is really a special and rare case of special cap..!!!
2700pF/500Volt 2,5% 9x23 Styrofoam NSF axial Made in 1960 !Quote"NSF Styrofoam cap is unequaled in the reproduction of color. These are much better than similar caps"

Can you suggest an European distributor for the resistors ?

Sometimes, when I receive a package from America, it gets stuck in the customs and I always pay more in taxes then the total cost of the parts....

Well, that's part of the trouble getting parts.
Dunno any source in Europe, maybe the UK guys?

Thanks Simon

This regulator was really important.... I did not realize it before.

The BIG caps follow imediately and these where my first mod and the reason why I found this excelent Forum.

The BIG caps alone, give the player an enormous power in the bass and extreme extencion in the trebble (without distortion).

Adding the Schottkys and the new Reg did the Magic.... I am hearing good sound again...

Thanks to you all..!

Ricardo
