Hello jmolsberg and everyone.
My research of Alan Eaton amps led me to this thread. Thanks for the postings and discussion. Learning interesting stuff.
My wife and I visited Mr. Eaton 2 days ago, and we will be joining some of you as owners of his craft. It'll be Mr. Eaton's 2A3 monoblocks for us.
I totally agree to jmolsberg's approach: to experience it for a duration, learn more during that time. Then, if necessary, experiment with possible upgrades.
So, here I am gathering info for now. Jmolsberg, would you mind sharing exactly what specs of Vcaps and Miflex were used for replacement? Are they exactly the same spec/value as the caps swapped out, or within some kind of reasonable tolerance?
Along this vein, is there a general guidance to cap replacement values, how closely they need to follow the original? A place for me to read up perhaps?
