Gommes 40PG Update

As per Mike Samra's suggestion, I reconfigured C1, the three section electrolytic cap. They were 40/20/20 uf. I added a 60uf Panasonic film capacitor underneath to replace the first 40uf section. Then I connected the first and second section to make a second 60uf, leaving the last 20uf alone.
There was exactly enough room to affix the Panasonic with Goop.
BIG improvement in sound. It was like a veil was lifted. Not an improvement I had to listen carefully to hear. It was a few orders of magnitude better.
Thanks again Mike!!
