Hi there!
I got two threshold sl10s. one with only aluminium capacitors on it and one with aluminium and tantalum 47uf's on it. My question is: can I put instead of the tantalum teardrop caps, put normal aluminium electrolytic caps on it for an upgrade.
grtz teake

you have schmtc for reference.......
tantalum is somewhere better than Al elco....
talk to us with facts-which cap,where....

Hi guys!
I got my sl10 working with silmics, it sound very good, better as before. More musical, more dynamics, also a bit darker, but not that clear as I used to have. Will it chance after some burning in? I give it a try, but for so far now it sounds good. My other sl10, an older one, sounds more powerful and I think better in balance. I did not use tantalums but normal silmics for the 47uf, because in this later model, there where no tantalums only in the earlyer one. I will chance that too after a while, to hear if there is a difference. I will let you now. I only did not have the time to put the new tentlabs shunt regulators in it. I will give it a try next week GRTZ Teake

Hi again!
There is a 31 step attanuator in the sl10, is it an Alps Black Beauty or another one? And so if, is it possible to upgrade it, wil the sound get better with an other attanuator, like dact or elma?
Thanks allready. Teake.

Default Help Replacing SL-10 Capacitors

Hi All,

I'm new to this forum and need alittle help. I have a SL-10 and want to replace all the old capacitors. Currently it has all silver blue Instrument Devices caps in it and I thought I would go with Elna Cerafine caps. Anyway since the current caps are not marked as to which side is + and which is - can anyone tell me how I can determine which side of the cap is + and which is - there is a white arrow that goes down one side of each cap, would that be the negitive marker? thanks for the help.

Dave

Default sl10

Hi Dave!
The blue instrument devices capacitors are + on the white stripe and the other side is -. Just the opposite from the normal caps. So if you put the elna's, be aware that the negative (white stripe) is the opposite of the white arrow on the instrument device caps.
Succes Teake

Hi guys,
I re-open this topic because I'm interested on a SL10 buying.
Seller is a german who gave me next info:
the preamp has been modified by a German HiFi Company
(Outsider Team and Beyer Eletronics), che caps have been improved (he did not specified type/brand) and new volume-poti by Pabst has been installed.
Someone of you, guys, know about german OTBE modifying? It's really an improvement?
It seems there is a german SL10 expertise owner in this forum... Jurgen "Audiotux"...?...
Thanks so much for help,
Nino
