The HUGE Black caps that are lying down are the 10uF Paper In Oil Obligatos. C101 and C201.

All the electrolytics are standing up.

If you had to have all 'lytics standing up they wouldn't make "Axial" versions ???

An interesting point.

Why, with upright caps doesn't all the elctrolyte run down to the bottom of them ?

Surely, capilliary action will keep the electrolyte all through the cap in either orientation.

Now that I remember, is that why my stereo plays a bit different for a day or so, after I turn the pre-amp over?

Electrolytics would be useless in Space !!!

And portable CD players.

And Mobile Phones.

And military aircraft.

If we push aside the Semi-conductor vs Glass Tube debate - nearly all P2P wiring lays electrolytics on their sides.

MJF - do you have a link to the article. It must be worth a read for a laugh.

How are you going to test this theory with your turntable ?

It can't be a theory since it has not been proved.
It is not even a hypothesis, since it's all in my mind (so far).

Who says Civil Engineers have no imagination?

Turning the pre-amp over inverts the phase! It's WAY easier than reversing the speaker leads.
