Default Q about re-capping Linn LK-100

Hi,

I'm looking for power supply caps for this amp. They're now nearly 10 years old and I think it's time for exchange.
So far I came up with Black Gates (insanely priced here in Europe ~300/p) and Elna Cerafines (reasonable price but unfortunately to large). I'm looking for 10,000uF/80V with a max height of 75mm.
Is there anything else you can recommend?

TIA,
Tom

Welcome to the forum Tom.
What's in there now?
BC components 154 series (80 cm high screws included) are not a bad choice IMHO.

In fact you need people like Jean-Paul or Peter Daniel for this type of questions.

Unfortunately to large. They must not be more than 75mm in height. Although you pointed me in the right direction. I found on the BC site the 156 series which are only 50mm in height.
Btw they are also offered with 12000uF. Does it make sense if I put slightly bigger ones in?

I hope they do jump in on this subject.

thanks & regards,
Tom

Hi Tom,

I think you can use Slit-foil-Capacitors in your LK 100.
There are types 10000F/63V. I use the same one in my LK 2.

Best regards

Jo
