these 47.000 63V PEH169 would be monsters ! One of them weighs 800g, while the same capacitance on the PEH200 40V series is "only" 245g

David,
have you fused the main power rails between amp and smoothing?

You could also look to the new Mundorf M-Lytic HC 2-pole or 4-pole caps

I've seen them. They are priced like jewelry and labeled as "audiophile", something I don't like so much. Anyway, thanks a lot for your suggestion! ciao

That Mundorf M-Lytic HC looks exactly the same as my FT serie GW: Elektrolyt-Kondensatoren mit Gewindeanschluss - FTCap Fischer & Tausche Capacitors Group

Wonder how they optimized them for use in audio....

They asked the oem to show their Mundorf data & logo on the caps.
Then doubled the price, or could it have been tripled the price?

Considering that F&T manufactured the first 4-pole lythics (me bought 4-paws in mid '80s), maybe not that surprising.
Fewer number of capacitor manufacturers than brands, in particular nowadays.

So guys, please give me your last sentence for an F5 mono amp.
I've narrowed my choice to:
RIFA PEH169 22.000uF 40V 105c x 4
RIFA PEH200 47.000uF 40V 85c x 4
Both of them are stud mount with very good ESR and L figures.
The latter doesn't sport the "EE.UU. made" label (China..?), while the 169 does it, at least on pictures.

Thanks a lot. Have a great diy new year (I mean for audio )

one way would be to look at RIFA spec sheet, and carefully check can sizes, and watch if it matches other specs
