Thread-topic: [CRTech] Orban 8100A Recapping

Tantalums may have long life but I’d definitely swap those out just for more transparent audio.  Yes, I worked at a small, top end audio manufacturer for a little over a year.




From: Bill Hurne [mailto:billhurne@pilgrimradio.com]


Not all three units of the same model had the same caps inside.   Some had electrolytic coupling caps, others had tantalum.   I didn’t replace any tantalum.    The polarity is marked on the PC boards, makes it easier.
