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

RE: Question on paralleling caps...

Hi Sherod,
The Nichi HE is a very good, low ESR cap and just about perfect for that location, if it were me I'd leave it where it is. Paralleling two smaller caps does have some theoretical advantages, even lower ESR, but in this application, I've not "heard" any improvements when tried on other tuners.

If you want to experiment try a couple of Panasonic FR or FM caps and connect the leads above the board using the existing through holes. That way you don't have to drill the board and you can see, hear, any differences before you start drilling holes .

Just my $.02, oh and I've never heard or experiences any issues in using a BG "N" in a feedback loop.
