Default Bryston 2B LP recap advice

I have a Bryston 2B LP which is now 24 years old. It has a hum or buzzing noise that you can hear at the speakers.

I'm thinking about replacing all the electrolytic caps for this unit. The main reason for the upgrade is to eliminate the hum.

There are two big and 3 small electrolytic caps per board.

Which audiophile grade caps would you recommend? Are any voltage adjustments required after the change?

Thanks for your help.

I have a 2B LP Pro that had the same issue. I contacted Bryston and they kindly mailed me new replacement caps with smaller volume at same capacity, soldered right in. Amp's been working perfectly since.

Isn't this a great sounding amp for such an old beast? I prefer to any of their follow ups until the SST line

I really like the small Bryston. I have a SST amp for my HT but prefer the 2B LP for music. I bought a used Bryston 0.4B preamp on the weekend. A very musical sounding preamp.

Can you advice the name and the spec, with picture, if possible.
