Well, here goes, I have managed to gather together enough parts to start my first B22 build.
Actually, while I was at AMB's site I also ordered a y1 & y2 kit because I figured a B22 should be fed by something a little better that my Iphone5.
I will start with a 3 channel configuration, however i am second guessing that, I may end up doing a 4 channel even though i do not have a source to take full advantage of it, some day I might.
I know the B22 was designed to be build with non " boutique" caps, however I happen to have a collection of Elna silmic II caps on hand that i could use, the larger power rail caps i have are 1000uf 50v rather than the
recommended 470uf, outside of PS issues, are there any reasons i shouldn't use these?
Waiting on a mouser order right now, but I am hoping to start populating the boards today if work schedule allows .
I used 470uf 63v Elna Silmic II's I had lying around. The general rule is 10% tolerance on top of the values you're replacing. Voltage usually doesn't matter but resistance and capacitance does in some cases.
