Default Naim recap

I have a couple of 1990 vintage NAP-135's that have never been serviced and are in need of a recap. The NAP-52 is in the same boat but I'll start with the amps. Just wondering if this is basic job that can be done easily.

Anyone know which caps are replaced besides the 2 filter caps? I was thinking of the 22,000uF/63V Aerovox. Is there a better make?

all the electrolytics.
check to see if there are any that are hi dielectric ceramic or low quality film (PPropylene, teflon, styrene, silvered mica, NP0 (=C0G) ceramic and carbonate are all good).

Look at Neil Mcbrides web page as it contains details of the rebuild that I think you are contemplating.

Anyone know where I can purchase Kendeil capacitors?

That's what Avondale Audio uses in their Naim recap service. I'd send the amps to them but I'm hesitant about shipping them overseas.

Thanks again

I used BHC Aerovox to recap my Exposure integrated amp. I beleieve alot of British high end companies like Naim, Linn and Exposure use BHC Aerovox caps in thier amps. There slit foil caps are supposed to be very good for audio, I used the ALS40 series which gave good results as well.

I stumbled upon this page recently.
Might be useful but you've probably already seen it.
