Oh, c'mon. I used to do crazy stuff like that too, but presently I'm of the notion that a single cap DO sound better. That's why you will not see multiple caps on my PS boards

I'm sure you will find suitable single can caps realtively cheap in DigiKey catalog. If not, the ones in a picture are for sale.

Point taken Peter, here I am striving for simplicity and I'm thinking of wiring multiple cap banks LOL. I'll take a look around and see what I come up with, I'm sure the PS boards will not be ready for some time yet so it will give me some time.

OK so now I'm off to look for some cheap can caps, Thanks again for the reply Peter it helps me fall off the fence I've been teedering on, Peace and keep well.

Any preferances to supply caps for the F5 Peter, specifically oriented toward your supply design? Anything worth looking into? Thanks again...

Personally I would go with top grade Nichicons (Super Through) or Jensens, but they are $40/pc

However, those Panasonics can't be bad either: http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...&name=P6946-ND

You know what Peter I was looking at the Jensens on the PartsConnextion site and though I'd love to spend $160/amp on supply caps I'm afraid the $320 for the pair puts this into the ridiculous category for my wife.

I had a few caps picked out from Digikey but wanted to wait for supply boards before I made a jump.

I'll go Panasonics for now and if I don't like I'll go Nichicons or Jensens, but it will have to be a drastic improvement for me to even consider the price increase.

Take care.

I'm placing the order this weekend, and it should take approx 2 weeks to get the boards.

The two large holes (for screw in caps) can be modified for lugs with a small file.
