:)
More character in sound, more musical. Before I canged caps I had small humm (not loud but still noticeable), for some reason there is no humm anymore. I have to tell that I listened only 20hours so far, lots of burn in left, at least 500hours with that size caps.

...but do not think it is easy to change tose caps. It's hard because there is not much space.

Are those the power caps??? Makes some sense that those biggies might resolve humm. I think of coupling caps when i think of changing caps. Interesting.

You can find caps from here (and more info):
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Obbligato-PSU-Film-47uF-500V-/230687790595?pt=Vintage_El...

Yes, those are power caps. If you going to change you have to connect them correct - right side caps (5st) with text up side down! And you going to need lot of hot glue. And be advised that there is not much space, so place caps wisely.

I found something interesting: https://www.intertechnik.com/Shop/Cross-over-parts/Capacitors/Audyn-Cap-Q6/_7045...
This cap is cheaper and smaller, metalized polypropylene film capacitor. Can't say which is better, but at least it's smaller and easy to change.

SPECS:
Audiophile MKP capacitor,
Max Power handling : 600 V
Loss Angle Tan: 0.0003 (1 kHz; 20oC)
Tolerance: +/-5%
Connecting leads: Axial, tinned copper, 35mm long.
Operating temperature: -25oC - +85oC

Great photos and mods  ;)

I might want to replace those to Duelunds when my Torii arrives...

Thanks!
