^^ Agreed. Any time I recap anything for friends, I look for hi temp, low ESR standard audio caps. Nichicon is what I usually end up buying.

also, I'm close to Digi-key too, but often opt for Mouser simply because they don't tack extra handling fees onto small orders like Digi-Key does.

Thanks you all for your kind advice which I found very helpful. With regards to rectifier, can you recomend a good brand?

I work in most cases with Semikron rectifiers, e. g.
SEMIKRON - IGBT, Diode, Thyristor, Power Semiconductor Modules, Chips, Assemblies
or IXYS (e. g. VBO22-16NO8, diode bridge)
