Let's hope he also exchanged the 250V lytic cans.

Too lazy to take pic of the inside, maybe later. I use all the big 250v cans for the aleph. I don't know how those cans affect the sound, but I choose them for their spec. for ripple current. In the f3 I use kendeil and Sikorel 63v. For now,the best sounding amp. I have built is the aleph J. That's my subjective opinion.

Electrolytics are like fit-to-size elastic knickers.
If a lytic capacitor is not (de)charged to it's rated voltage over a long period of time, a big can turns to a little cup.
In such a case, estimate what the effect will be of operating a 250V rated can at 24-25Vdc.
