2 of .1uF/600v (or should I go for .15uF/600v?)
Mills & Riken Ohm resistors. (btw, does anyone remember exact resistor values?)
Should I replace the cables at the same time, and what cable would you recommend. And what about those cables that are connected to Alps potentiometer, should I replace those too?
I guess I have to order V-Caps from v-cap.com, but I think I'm ordering everything else from partsconnexion.com, so I would be very thankful if you guys would help me build my shopping list.
either the .1uF or the .15uF is fine for this amp...make sure to
clean the contact points of as much of the remaining solders
as possible when you desolder to facilitate best contact between
the v-cap lead wires and contact points when you resolder.
the mills resistors:
1K MRA-5 (5watt) to replace the grey resistors
2K MRA-5 (5watt) to replace the dark blue resistors
56K Riken (1watt) to replace the red resistors
470K Riken (1watt) to replace the small light blue resistors
higher watt is better but not always available...
just make sure all the resistors are oriented in mirror-like fashion.
it doesn't really matter which direction you choose with resistors
but the right and left should mirror each other...
no need to replace the internal wiring for the alps pot...
you may want to replace the internal wiring for each of the
power caps but more work involved...i used 22 gauge silver
stranded internal hookup wires but any good quality wire is fine.
good luck and be careful if this is your first time...
