Question 220uf25v to 220uf35v

My adcom gfa585le has 220uf 25v capacitors on the input board. Can i use 220uf 35v that i already have in place of 220uf 25v? Also what are your opinions of Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors? Thanks!

Yep, they should do nicely - as long as they mechanically fit.

Hi,
No harm replacing with a higher rated one that's provided the pcb has enough space and my recent read up on supercapacitors ( bestcap by AVX) research shows maximum charge efficiency at 35V, any higher and it becomes lower proportionate to capacity.

Nichicon fine gold has been marketed
as audio grade but I have not noticed any significant "upgrade" in sound quality ,same with the muse.It is a case of does it have substance with the said packaging? It's like an audio makeover if you have them in your circuits. singa

I have had wonderful results with the Panasonic industrial lineup of electrolytics. Most are economical , VERY durable , and have the qualities that my audio requires.

Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor | Passive & Electromechanical | Panasonic Industrial Solutions Global

I use FM/FR for DC blocking/bootstrap/small power supply, and HC
for large PS's. For input's and decoupling all wima/Xicon poly's. MTBF is 10-20 years with a healthy derating. I have seen Nichicon (another good brand Japanese capacitor) large PS caps go the full 20 years to read just marginal on a ESR meter. BEWARE of chinese "offbrand" caps , most video cards (pc stuff) lasts only 18 months , then I have to replace them w/ the panasonics argggg!!
