All values are below 0.1uF, and it turned out that at that level even HV capacitors are small enough to fit. My secondary goal was also to save some $$$, but using parts you already own is also a way to save $$$. (See my post below.)
Thanks to everyone who responded.
Some of your old posts have been very helpful to me, even though you may not be aware of it, so thanks!
All values below .1uF? I never seen over 30 years of rebuilding SS amps and receivers using less than 2uF in FM radio coupling sections and never below 5uF every where else.
I must be hallucinating, in that case.
If it helps you to calm down, this is the solid state input PCB from a Beveridge Audio direct-drive amplifier, which has a tube-based output stage. I have posted the schematic here. I replaced C101, C103, C104, C107, C108 C109, and C110.
C109 and C110 are 10uF @ 40 volts.
Yes, I certainly do know that. I replaced the OEM ones with ELNA Silmic II. I have also used Auricap 10uF/400V in that position with success, but I decided to stick with an electrolytic in this amplifier.
