Every kit includes all the parts needed to rebuild a 2325 receiver. Replacements for every electrolytic capacitor are provided, bagged individually by circuit board to make it easier to go board-by-board while you complete your rebuild. The two big filter capacitors are sized to fit the original clamps. Also included are WIMA film capacitors to replace selected electrolytic and tantalum capacitors. The kit includes replacement transistors for the 2SC458s on the phono board, and recommended diode replacements for the main power amplifiers.
Your Choice of Capacitors
The standard kit uses Panasonic FC series capacitors. Or you can upgrade to Elna Silmic II capacitors. The FC caps are rated to 105 degrees vs the 85 degree rating of the Silmic II caps. The 2325 runs hot and the reliability of your 2325 will be a little better with the FC caps. A compromise is to use FC caps on the power supply board which is the one that tends to cook capacitors, and use Silmic IIs on the rest of the board. Let me know what you want, I can mix and match to meet your preferences.
Your Choice of Filter Capacitors
The standard kit uses United Chem-Con filter capacitors with an optional upgrade to computer grade Sprague/Vishay capacitors.
