RE: Alternates to Blackgate

The only Blackgates I ever purchased are FK 1000 µF 50V, for the power supply of a McCormack SS phono stage I was modifying. They were too large to fit, so I had to go with something else which would.

I take that back, since I also bought a couple of the 4.7 µF bi-polars everyone was raving about. They never got used either. After seeing what these things now sell for, maybe I should consider it!

I've tried clip-leading the ASCs into a tube amp's existing power supply circuit, and liked what they did, but always wondered how much of that had to do with the extra 60 µF per cap storage capacity.

At the risk of totally hijacking Jeff's speaker crossover thread, maybe we should move this over to DIY tube or Tweakers.

Thanks for the head's up on the Jensens.
