Bill, you're a... champ!
Many thanks for that.
Yes, the documents contain useful, but also interesting info.

Best.

Default Capacitor polarity

Hi,
I am planning to change the "Instrument Devices" caps on my Threshold SL-10, which is wonderful preamp.
I tested the polarity of caps with power on and found out the leads with arrow stripe were positive! (Which is opposite of convention)
Is this correct that the leads with arrow stripes are positive?
I don't want the caps explode on me.
Thanks for your help.

if you already tested ..... ignore the caps and observe voltage polarity on pcb

Default After recapping

I finally reconstructed the power supply and replaced the caps with Elna Silmic II as most of you suggested, including Nelson. My! What a difference new caps made...natural timber, improved dynamics, well defined bass, airy highs....My system literally sings!?!
Thank you.
