Aussie source of Cerafines?
Yesterday my Marantz CD50SE packed it in; the display blank and a buzz coming from the speakers. I thought it was one of the transformer windings as the tranny was crackling, but it turned out one of the Elna Cerafines in the PSU was butted against a voltage regulator and had swollen...
Do any Aussies know of a local source of Cerafines? I know of WES components, but theirs are limited to 100V and I need 35V 220uF because of limited space. In fact, when Marantz modded the unit, they already had to leave longer leads because the replacements were bigger than stock. There's not a lot of scope for larger cans.
I know of Welbourne and others elsewhere but I was hoping to get this unit sorted by the 25th!
I know I could just use ordinary caps but I guess if Marantz reckon 'audio grade' caps make a difference in this spot I must maintain at least the original quality. I don't want to desolder the board again, as I've had bad experiences desoldering 90's Marantz gear!
Not Cerafines but I replaced Elna DuorexII with Panasonic FC in a Sony ES CD player. I can't say it improved the sound but didn't hurt either.
You can get them from RSonline but be prepared for $$$ shock as with all their stuff. They used to have Rubycon ZL and Nichicon FG but they pulled the plug on them.
Thanks Rabbitz. I ended up with Rubycon ZA's from Farnells (and picked up a Grayhill rotary switch at half price in their sale to make the shipping cost worthwhile).
The ZA's at the same rating are about half the size!
