Default Jupiters: Tolerance: 26% over spec: o.k.?


I bought "0.22uF" Jupiters for use in the Kel84 (simple EL84 PP Amp, http://www.world-designs.co.uk/acatalog/kel84.pdf). The Kel84 asks for 0.22uF coupling caps between the PI and the output tubes.

The Jupiter's are: .277uF & 0.284uF (2 matched pairs).

That's >26% higher than spec. Is it o.k. to use those?

The loudspeaker: The only commercial Hi-Fi item where a disproportionate part of the budget isn't spent on the box. And the one where it would make a difference...
