    In the 60's -70's Lafayette use to be the go to place for electronic parts and products. I still have one of their tube receivers and several of their quad 8 track car players. They made nice stuff in their day.

    I dug around a bit and found what I'd read about signal going through electrolytics and it wasn't those 22mf. They were 100mf's and I've already replaced those.
    Ok; The voltage thing was pretty easy. Now, how do you fine tune your choices? Take just the one brand of Nichicon & look at the audiophile sales pitch mumbo jumbo:

    Nothing is misguided to it's creators, only the recipients who didn't want the expectation ruined for them.

    After shotgunning all the electrolytic capacitors, this second APT Holman pre-amp that was dead or nearly dead in one channel is working again....for now.

    Will be waiting for APT Holman pre-amp #1's subsequent problem to manifest itself in this one. Should know in a couple of weeks.

    Mouser would have a fit if i ordered mf or mmf, the modern world is using uf so you old farts need to join the rest of us so we are all on the same page.
