: Oh my...5-1/2 years later I may be buying these very amps back from the friend to whom I sold them. Their job would be to drive a pair of Revel Ultima Salon2s next year. More soon.

: I believe we'll soon have a deal and I'll end up with 'my' amps. I plan to remove ALL the old 680uF BG-Fs and end up with, in addition to the 80,000uF of Nichicon Super Through initial PS caps, only the original 8-count of DNA caps. This time those will be BlackGate (std.) 470/160s plus a total of 4uF of SoniCap Platinum bypasses per amp. That would total 83,760uF of capacitance, exactly the same as the sum of the original caps. I've read the old thread completely a couple times recently and am amazed at all the time and effort I and my goodbuddy Pat put in. I also can't see anything else I need to redo.
Because of the (temporary) low price, I ordered the same type of 2-outlet, plug-in-the-wall-outlet power conditioner I had used previously with the '750s, an Audience aR2p...https://www.thecableco.com/adept-response-ar2p.html
...the standard version ($200 under RR!), for these amps. That way I won't have to replace the still-fried-closed power switches AND I'll have some noise filtering and surge protection on them.
Here's a pic from February 2012. NONE of that equipment but the screen is still in my system.
Another pic, from December 2012, with one of the amps, finished. Still V'steen 5A speakers with custom-wound Neotec UPOCC-copper or -silver speakercable. Still in the system now are the Neotec ICs and Neotec/Furutech powercable.
