Sorry i don't have it. I just replaced all the RCAs to Neutrik types. The original Elna 50V 10,000uF was changed to Nichicon Gold Tune 63V 15,000uF. The improvement is an increase in horse power when play with dynamics intensive type of genre.

Interesting. I replaced my RCAs on the same model several years ago, as one of my first building projects. The original RCA’s were plastic and fell apart from the heat near the heat sink. The replacement is time consuming but worth it - its is a good little amp.

Thats what i had encountered too. The plastic mould had crack and chip off, can't find any replicals so got to resort to this.

Hi,

Was searching the older posts and came across the upgrades for the Audiolab 8000a.

Am thinking along the same lines and was wondering if the amp needs the bias to be readjusted after the caps have been replace? If so, how to accomplish the adjustment?

Thank you in-advance for any assistance in the matter!
