I want to do this - thanks for what you've posted here, very interesting. My only question for now is after shorting the caps as you've shown, what are you soldering the new caps to? The old shorted leads? This is what I have not been able to determine in reading about the Zxr cap mods.
Germanium's Sound blaster ZXR mod thread - Page 15
Shortening is needed only where it shown as shortening. Then just solder new caps "legs" to the old caps, germanium explained that new caps will override old one (i don't fully understand this but he is the man who understand how it flows) so just keep polarity in mind and solder new caps legs to old ones under the board.

The caps we use for this mod aren't polarized, at least none of the caps anyone so far has used and posted about.
Oh and look what I got to review from Burson Audio:
I am seeing if they will send me out the 2nd stage also, (V5-OPA-S is what goes in the other socket).
