Is there anything wrong with using these capacitors for the PS? I know they are not the most well known brand but they are good value.

If I just order more of Q1 and Q2... would Q5 and Q6 be affected by my mistake?


Fran

if nothing else - go to Papa's site ( Pass Diy ) and download few pdfs ...

I mean that in "discrete OP for DIY " ( or something like that ) file you can find how to test jfets and mosfets .

use your imagination , and learn something ......

I think that you can find 22mF and 33mF/25V Panasonic caps at Digikey-UK ;

better deal , in any case

Can do, but over twice the price. Would need atleast 30v caps as using 25v rails.

twice the price - but quality

25V rails ?

what xformer you're using ?
if 2x18Vac , then you'll end with something as 22V on output .

(tip : look at pics at 6moon - which voltage Papa is using ........ then look for surge voltage for Pana caps )

2x18v xformer yes. I thought 25v caps would be pushing it, if the rails were 22v.

Would you reccomend scrapping the cheap caps and getting some panasonics, as i have allready bought a set of 8 from ebay, would it be worth buying a whole new set?

if you already bought them ...... now invest in pair of nice motor-run caps ... 50 to 80uF , and place them as two final caps ......

sort of real man's bypass
