Hi all, I have the same board (SMSL 36pro) with one big caps. I have few good Panasonic caps 4700uf 16V with low ESR. I was thinking to substitute the big cap with these two. but I saw the mod that brozium did putting 3 4700uf 25v caps. Is it fine if I do the same mod but using the panasonic caps? Do you think will be worth to do it? Sorry for the noovb question

Hi all, first post for me. I've an SMSL SA-36A Pro that is a few years old now and uses the TPA3118 chip (link includes pictures of the guts of the amp). I've used it with a variety of speakers over the years, but have never really been satisfied with the amount of bass it produces with any of them. As a result, I am considering making some changes...

I thought I might start first with the PSU, as I'm not impressed by the fit or finish of the supplied 12V 3.8A unit. Would using a 24V 5A PSU likely be beneficial? Is a 2.1mm or 2.5mm inner connector needed? I was considering the CWT CAD120241, although it is 30.
