Default source caps for aleph 1.7

Hello

Where does one source 10uf blackgate N series caps from
for the AP1.7, seems the cheapest option.
Parts connection no longer stock these

Cheers
Dan

The great thing about those caps is that they "can be used to relieve the musicís vibration energy, to decrease the peak feeling sound at high compass..."

I'm not aware of any other capacitors that do that.

Straight from the Digikey catalog (but I'm guessing those are Elna's words).

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Yes, with prose like that, how bad could they be?

The Elna's only go as high as 35V, what voltage do the caps see in the AP1.7? Is the 60V split?

nice to see hndme.com are now stocking the 220uf/16V silmic II's

$100US minimum for OS orders is kinda ugly however.

Hello All!

Well Ive received the silmic II's, now its got me thinking.

being an Electrolytic, does it matter which end (negetive or positive) goes into the circuit of the Ap1.7, Im thinking it doesnt matter, but...
also is it recommended bypassing these.

Cheers
Also being 35v ones they are even smaller than BG N.
Makes my board look wimpy

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but I hope you don't plan on playing "Pop goes the weasel" as your first song with those caps.

The input voltage is 60V on this one (AP1.7 right?) and in Nelson's article - Balanced Zen Line Stage, he calls for P5593-ND for C103-106, which is a 10uF/100V cap

It would be a shame to see those nice Elna's go up in smoke.
