Default Upgrade caps for the 8800

Thanks for the note regarding the V-Cap CuTF upgrade for the 8800. All of a sudden it appears there are none of these in amplifiers in stock from US sellers. Guess I'll have to wait. Want to get the amp ordered before ordering the caps.
I don't see the caps listed on the VK Music website, if you have more details please let me know at ajcatan@hotmail.com. Thanks!

I would strongly suggest you reach directly to Victor if you are interested in the amp and the capacitors. He is very responsive, and he will either quote you a price for them or tell you when he will have more kits in stock. In my experience, he as more items in stock than you will find on his website - the most accurate information is in this forum, or if you reach out to him directly.

Default With Harbeth SHL5?

How well would this amp drive a 86db Harbeth SHL5?

Hi,

the rated input is 0.36V which seems quite low.

My DAC outputs 2V RMS ... would it work to connect that directly as I can control the volume digitally from the streamer, or should I put a pre-amp in - my pre is Cambridge Audio AZUR 841E which maxes at 8V in 100 steps, so I'm assuming that's 0.08V per step which would give me 4 steps from nothing.

would either of those be a good option for the 8800?

thanks
Jonathan.

Just a silly thing ... I'm assuming it's a typo ... shouldn't it be 230V?

from first post
------------
Power supply voltage: AC120 / 200V 50 / 60Hz (3P inlet)
------------

Japan mainly uses 100V for domestic appliances. Specifically, as Victor is indicating, that's not 110V as used in many other countries.

There are also, sometimes at least, 200V outlets in Japanese residences. They tend to be for air conditioners. For which reason, and possibly safety as well, they are usually located just below ceiling height. (Additionally, some of those elevated aircon outlets may be only 100V, as many aircon units are 100V models.)

So most of the time, it's 100V 50Hz in eastern Japan, 100V 60Hz in western Japan, and you'd have to look at a map to see which side of the line some of the more central locations would fall.

Modern audio equipment in Japan is almost invariably (I'm assuming it's a requirement by now) be specified as 50/60Hz. For vintage gear from the 1970s or earlier, that is far less the case.

And either way, Japan has no exact equivalent of 110V/60Hz.

Regionally speaking, 220V (or thereabouts) and 50Hz is most common in almost the whole of Asia. One exception is Taiwan, which is 110 (not 100, despite its Japan connections pre-1945).
