Are you looking to replace these ? The ones I ordered seemed about 3mm taller too (Nichicon) and I did not use them but because of height. Are you in the US ?

Never mind ...here you go...form mouser...these are your specs, right ?

yes I'm in US and want to replace them , looking at the dimensions ,are you sure they will fit ? 

EDIT; the Nicichon's I have were linked in my previous post and they are jumbo size 

 

EDIT ; I will have to open Aune again and measure Lelon's

99% sure...

 

The ones I ordered (and measured against the Lelons) are 25mm tall. Remember I said they were just a few mm taller ? well, the link I gave you was 20mm...5mm shorter and should match perfectly - always good to check if you can though

Do they not have Fine Gold series caps that are shorties which will work for us?

 

Do we have room to run axials?  I was trying to find Black Gates, but they are retarded expensive at 3300uF ratings.

 

I'll have my amp/dac probably Friday and I'd like to go ahead and get the upgraded components, I already have 2 NOS tubes on the way.

 

Elna Silmics' are supposed to be great caps and you can find 3300uF (50V) for under $12 for two of them, but they are 50mm...

 

Rubycons' will definitely work, they are 20mm.

You can..but remember these are power path caps, not signal path. The Nichicons 105 degrees would be fine for the purple cap and lelon replacements. It would be the headphone amp caps that youmight want LOW ESR but even then...

I decided to pick these up for secondaries (2):

 

(Elna Red Cerafine 470uF 25V)

 

 

I realize these are power components, but the caps are still filters for the incoming current, so the higher quality cap the better filtering.  It's like running a UPS between your PC and the wall outlet vs. not using one.

 

I know one thing once all my stuff arrives I should have this baby rocking!  So far my upgrades for my not yet arrived Aune T1:

 

NOS Amperex ECC88 6DJ8 Tube

NOS Philips 6922 JAN 6DJ8 (just for another option in voicing)

2x Nichicon 25V 3300UF FW (Primaries)

4x Elna Red Cerafine 470uF 25V (Secondaries)

2x "Heavy Duty High Mass" Aerospace Silicon Tube Dampening Rings (Yes these are a lot of hype, but I figured I'd try them since I will be moving this around; especially since hot tubes are way more prone to damaging)

 

:L3000:

I just heard the US version has 330uF caps for secondaries instead of 470uF like the UK version, can anyone in the US confirm that for me?

US Version

secondaries (I call them the purple caps ) 330uf 35v

primaries (Lelons) 3300uf 25v

Should be good...what you wanted to compare was ripple current not ESR rating. LOW ESR can sometimes have low RMS ripple current numbers..low ripple means more work means more heat in PS caps...or so I understand...in all cases, this is a DAC not a power amp so it will be fine...and great quality !!

But can someone verify if the US models have 330uF vs 470uF for the secondaries?

Not sure if it's specifically the US model, or it's just that there was a component change somewhere along the way so that some have 330uF, some have 470uF.    Hard to know for sure without confirmation from Aune.

Always, the easiest way to be 100% sure...Look at the caps themselves...

This is mine:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/121237359749?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

 

If you scroll down they actually show internal shots, someone with knowledge of the components used in the Aune T1 might be able to tell me what I have.

There are no views of the values on the caps in those photos.  However, even if there were - don't trust generic internal shots.  Open it up and check for yourself.
