I am looking for large caps for the Aleph 4 clone of 80,000uf value audio grade, but can't seem to find them?

Also, the design specifies 400va toriods, would 500va do as well?

Any help would be appreciated for parts sources or suppliers.

Default Re toriods

Hi Al.M.

No help on capacitors but good news on the toriod

A 500VA toriod will do (assuming the output voltages are the same). It'll even get less warm under same circumstances.

I don't recall the Aleph 4 as having 400 VA
toroids. You will need at least 500 VA per channel.

I recall Mark Finnis'Aleph 4 design had 400va toriods but adjustments may have been made. If I use 500va I wonder would this change anything in Marks design?

15000uf caps are a little too low for me.

Thanks for replies all, especially the founder NP.
