The biggest issue replacing these caps, is space.

I used Mundorf Silver & Oils, then after a re-build moved to Alaxandra caps that would never have fitted otherwise.

ClarityCaps ESA seems like a good choice, and they should fit no worries, go with the 630v.

Thanx Data, can you confirm before I place the order that I need:

x4 (0.1uF) and
x2 (0.22uF) ?

Clarity Cap ESA 0.1uf/630v measure 27mm x 20mm, so will fit fine, keep the orientation of the caps so that the signal travels in the same direction as the print on the cap/s.

Don't worry about the other two .22uf caps.

I put Wimas in place of the blue caps - it was a major PITA to do. The Yaqin MC-10T is probably the most difficult to work on amp I have ever owned.

Ok thanks, guess the ones I will be removing will have directional writing for me to follow the direction

You will be able to see the way they need to go by looking at the circuit before and after each cap.

Each output end will lead to the interconnecting wires from the pre amp PCB to the power PCB.

just had a look and perhaps the printed placement indicators gives direction

These are the connecting leads from the pre amp PCB to the power PCB, just follow the PCB traces from the caps to these as they leave the pre amp PCB.

That should show you the direction they need to be.
