Default Forte model 2: worth to change caps?

Hello, being on the budget for a preamp, i just acquired a model 2 from Forte. I am particularly interested to the phono stage of any unit as I do not have CD anymore (;-))
Is it worth to upgrade caps? Or better save the money and ask father Xmas a Threshold Fet 9?
In other words, can this unit modded sound in the league of the majestic Fet9?
Thanx so much

I just picked up a Forte Model 2 preamp and a looking for a schematic - also wonderinf if re-capping it would be worthwhile. I saw an old thread somewhere where a guy had upgraded to black gate caps and was very impressed with the sonic diffrence.

Wondering if you ever upgraded, or have a schematic?
