Default Aleph-x capacitors

Im halfway building my Aleph-x using Kristijans board. I have a few questions about the capacitors 220uF and 10pF (C1-C6). How critical is the values 220uf and 10pf? I have measured 212uF on at least on eight capacitors enough for two boards and 12pF with 1% diff between capacitors. Should I use them as they are or must I have exactly 220uF and 10pF?

I have tried for a few days to find the answers on this board but I had to give up.

Welcome anders,

The 220F are not critical at all. Just use some good brand and you'll be fine.
The 10pF however are in the signal path and should be chosen through listening test but first of all with a scope. Look at the outputs and adjust for best square wave reproduction. You might come up with anything between 5 and 15pF.
