doubt about xonar STX capcitor replacement

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

one of the 330uf 16v capacitors simply burned (i saw smoked coming from it)

 

as shown on the image

unfortunetly there are hardly any solid capacitors available in my country (brazil),  and ordering from china would take at least 2  months

 

 

i would like to know if i could use a 470 16V like this one:

or should use a couple of these:

older xonar's  used electrolitic capacitors with 270V 16V (mine has 330uf 16V) would it be safe and better the the 470 ?

 

 

wich should i use ?

 

 

thanks a lot

Vanderzee I'm in the same vote as you..  seems it may have been a good thing they upgraded the cap to a 330 UV unit. 

 

hmm..  what is the function of the unit, is it in the signal path, ..   s'hit'  upgrade all the capacitors..   !!   I would go with the highest quality capacitor and I think one would have less resistance..

thanks for posting

 

 

rater be safe then sorry.  

 

 

so i'll have some patience (more or less 2 months)  and ordered from ebay capacitors from the same brand and specification (and i hope they're not fake)
