330@3v? Then look for 6v or 10v or 16v.


When you can't find the exact value, like 39kuf/40v, try looking for 50v or 63v. Same with the value, if 39000 isn;t popping up, look for 40000 or some other value not far off

Thanks to all, I,ve replaced the output transistors on my aging Mac 2100 amp. All the scratchiness is gone. I've also replaced a good many of the caps also. Since this was my first attempt at any audio repair, I'm elated. Thanks!!!! Lizo
