Default Nichicon VX Same as Nippon Chemi Con VX?


I'm just getting started on my first mod project--my EAR 834P phono--and trying to follow Thorsten Loesch's recommendations, posted in numerous places. He states at one point: "Change over C8 and C9 to larger value, "known good" sounding electrolytics, I'd be tempted to specify at least 100uF/385V Nippon Chemi Con (radial leads) VX series..."

I cannot find Nippon Chemi Con VX electrolytics in this value except on eBay on a bulk order for 50 of them!

Item #180184076899

However, I have located Nichicon VX Series Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors from Angela Instruments, who will let me order only what I need (2).

Are these the same thing? I ask as Japanese often abbreviate/acronym in just this way--Nippon Chemi Con MIGHT becomed NiChiCon, for example.

Any DIYers out there know for sure? Sorry for this rookie question.

I'm no expert, but I pulled up each website and they appear to be two different companies.

I just stumbled on this thread from another search, but for caps you might want to check Michael Percy Audio and Apex Jr.. The latter is more of a dealer of surplus, but he has some GREAT prices on some things. Plus, he is a fellow member!

Thank you David. I've ordered from Michael Percy before, but he doesn't carry the Nippon Chemi Con VX capacitor, unfortunately. He, too, knew these companies were different and wrote me so just today. I'll have to keep searching.
