The bigger capacitor the better in power supplies...if the power supply can handle the initial charging current upon turn on. Since yours has been using a 470uf, it would be safe to say a 470uf 35v or even 50v would be what I would choose. All this cap does here is filter and provide extra stored current for transients in music. 470>330 in this spot.
BTW, quoted from the Aune website:
High quality component used:
Japan ALPSpotentiometer, German WIMA capacitors, four precision chip resistors, ENLA sound professional electrolytic capacitor, tube socket , USB port, RCA terminals are gold-plated material, full ON voltage regulator devices.
This statement has been verified FALSE in 3 different Aune T1's so far.

MARK one side of the caps on the board (+ or minus) so there is NO forgetting which way your new caps go in. Failure to do this makes caps go POOF when powered on, Not pretty
The white stripe ovals and - are the minus side. If you mark the board where the ORIGINAL white stripe is, you can't be confused LATER when its off the board. It may seem basic (like I know what I am doing). But many an expert has gotten his wires crossed. LITERALLY...LOL
Heed these words. But...the circuit board is already marked thankfully. I just had a momentary lapse of brain function when I installed my secondary caps backwards. And yes they popped in a very loud and scary manner. Flipped my aune over when it happened even. I had the bottom off monitoring temps.
