Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

Question on paralleling caps...

In the power supply, at location C12, the schemo has 1000uf, 50v. I currently have a Nichicon HE 2700uf,50v there and it sounds great. I was wondering...I have two Black Gate 1000uf,50v caps. Would paralleling them at C12 work? There is enough trace to drill two holes to fit the 2nd cap and enough room on the board to shoehorn it in. What do you think? I can get a Black Gate FK 2200uf, 63V but the seller is asking an exorbitant price for it. Black Gates are becoming very rare and more expensive. Supposedly the Audio Note owner in England is working with Rubycon to make him a Black Gate equivalent.
