Hi - thought I'd re-awaken this thread as I have a 47uF 63V MMK film cap. I was going to use it for the feedback capacitor in a Quad 606, but the folk at DaDa eletronics (Quad service/upgrade specialists) told me a non-polar cap should not be used in this position (C7).

Circuit diagram below:

I'm no expert so thought I'd double check opinion over here, as I've heard replacing eletrolytics is usually desirable in the feedback position?

Thanks,

- John

I suspect as a service centre they like to keep things standard on principle. A non polar cap will be fine.

In my amps I just use a standard 47uF electrolytic in the feedback chain just as most other designs do.
