Default HELP! Caps replaced-fuzzy sound

I replaced 2 16000uf PS caps in a Bedini 801 amp with Cornell Dubilier 33000uf. Both are rated @ 75VDC. Amp was quiet when 1st turned on. I put a cd in & got sound out of Rt channel & only a little static out of LF side, no music. I turned amp off & then on again & the rt channel began to distort. Immediately turned it off. I bought the caps on EBAY on EBAY over a year ago which were represented to be NEW!

CD- Part no is 500333u075cd2bnt HOPE THIS HELPS IN DIAGNOSTICS!

check the connections to the caps (screw terminals? solder joints?). If ok, fit again the old caps to check wether it's really the caps that cause the problems

Have fun, Hannes
