rtate,

Did you already remove the caps? I'm restoring my 535 and it used a 3 pin type (6800 uF 63v). My 535 won't accept snap-ins so I've built a new board from scratch to allow snap-in types.

Just curious if you'll be able to swap the originals out.

Hi sonidos, I have not removed the original caps yet.
They are 2 post 15000uf 80v with 4caps in total 2 for each channel.

I don't think space will be a problem for me within reason.

I noticed that Nichicon KG Series may fit the bill technically but they are very pricey. Percy Audio carries them.

By two pins, I'm assuming you're saying that these are snap-in types.

I did a quick check and they are not an easy find. I know sometimes members have a few on hand that they put up for sale. If your adventurous. Michael Percy carries the solder tab version.

Good luck in your search! If I happen to run into one that fits the bill, I'll post a quick note.

Hi rtate,

Guess what? Apex Jr. mentioned that he has screw top caps for Adcom....22,000 uf screw tops. Drop him an email if you haven't already.

He mentioned this in the trading post section for someone looking for a toroid transformer.

How big a power supply capacitor is too big?

How's a 68,000uf 100VDC?? Four of them? With rectifiers?
