Upgrades

The standard kit uses the highly regarded Panasonic FC series capacitors. They are rated for high temperatures and long service life and they are the first choice for long term reliability. You have the option of upgrading to Elna Silmic II capacitors. These are rated for the same temperatures as the originals, and have been popularized online, particularly in the Marantz forum on audiokarma.org. Which is a great place to read more about this.

Why Upgrade Capacitors?

Why upgrade indeed? Panasonic FC and Vishay/BC were selected for sound quality and reliability both. It's the standard rebuild kit used at irebuiildmarantz.com. People whose opinions I value say "put in a decent quality cap of the correct value and move on!" This is based in part on the knowledge that today's capacitors perform as well or better than the originals. But then there are the people whose opinions I value that believe a sonic improvement comes from upgrading to the Elna Silmic II and Nichicon Gold Tune caps. I can't hear it or measure it, but I believe them when they say they can hear it. So either way you are going to restore the original sound or perhaps improve on it. Pick which caps you want and you won't go wrong.

LED lamps are available separately.
