Default FS: Major Caps Upgrade for Linkwitz Pluto Loudspeakers

I recently rebuilt my Pluto speakers from v1 to v2.1. I don't use them much anymore (I'm an open baffle convert), so I decided to put up this ad. After having my Pluto's for a while, I decided to do a major capacitor upgrade - basically, anything that I could find the equivalent of, I replaced with Auricap Film capacitors, or Black Gate Electrolytic capacitors. These are some of the most high-end capacitors out there. In all, it is 96 capacitors for both channels, and replaces about 95% of the capacitors on the board. Although it was a pain to do, and somewhat expensive, I thought it was well worth it. Since then I've probably put a couple hundred hours on them, at least.

Here is a list of the capacitors and quantity:
Auricap Film Caps:
24 pieces of .01uF/600V
22 pieces of .033uF/600V
6 pieces of .33uF/450V
2 pieces of .047uF/600V
Black Gate Caps:
24 pieces of .01uF/50V NX type
2 pieces of 1uF/50V N type
4 pieces of 10uF/50V
4 pieces of 33uF/50V STD type
4 pieces of 470uF/50V STD type
Multicap Capacitors:
2 pieces of .0027uF/600V
2 pieces of .0068uF/600V

I've taken pictures of all the caps, which can be viewed here: ImageShack Album - 11 images. Here are a couple of samples:

I spent about $550 on these caps. Since then the price of Auricaps has gone up considerable, and Black Gates have become 'unobtainium'. I'm asking $450 plus S/H for the set, which is considerably less than what they would cost individually. I will start selling them individually at some point.

I'm located in Los Angeles. The best way to get a hold of me is through me email: peglegpatrick AATTT gmail DOTTT com. If you'd like to bring your Plutos up to 2.1, these caps are still a good option - the difference is only a few caps, and I can help you figure out what you need.

Thanks for looking!
