New caps for my SL-10: which one?
 
Hi everyone:

I've read all the threads I found about how to service my SL-10

Now my question is this: since it's not easy to find anymore new Black Gate capacitors by Rubycon, which one you'd suggest to look for and why?

Many thanks :)

Elna silk caps from Digikey.

:cool:

I had replaced output caps on my active crossovers with Elna silk caps and it was not a subtle change. Then I paralleled up some Elna silk caps on my F3 amps and I didn't notice much improvement there.

Thanks a lot for your answers.

What do you think about Vishay caps?

I'm asking that because of the difference in costs

thanks

One thing to note, the output cap in the F3 is inside the
feedback loop, so conceptually the feedback reduces the
effects of the capacitor.

Thanks
So you're suggesting the ELNA Silmic II, right?
Do I have to try to select and match the caps ?

As I asked before, that's ok with Elna, but what about Vishay or Nichicon?

thanks
