Default Most recommended Quad 33 upgrade ?

I just got a very nice Quad 33 which I'm willing to upgrade.
Browsing the web there are many suggestions of how to upgrade the 33,
including the Net Audio upgrade, and this one:

I was wondering, which is the most recommended upgrade available for the 33 ? What about the upgrade suggested on the link ? Will the 33 sound just as good as on the other "commercial" upgrades ? I rather prefer doing the upgrade myself using shelf components, rather than spending a few hundred bucks on upgraded custom boards

Change only all electrolytic capacitors, if they have not been replaced allready. Use good ones like panasonic FC, or other low ESR.

This page (http://209.85.229.132/translate_c?hl...2dkqtK-Qhp3KsQ) recommends also swapping out some of the resistors, and increasing the voltage. What do you think of this
