    Default 2 mfd vs. 2.2mfd capacitors for my pre-amp

    In my Anthem PRE2L tube pre-amp I currently have installed Dynamicaps 2uf or mfd capacitors which is the exact value as the originals.

    Since I have not done much to it lately I am thinking about trying these bad boys. However they only come in a value of 2.2 mfd.

    Suggestions are much appreciated.

    I guess I should check out the measurements before I go too far with this move

    You'll be more than fine, do it.

    Hey Mike

    If I remember correctly you have used these caps before. I'd guess you saying just do it means you think it may be a good/smart upgrade.

    My feeling is that for around a hundred dollars I will be pleased with the results.

    One more thing for you. Since I am thinking about a serious case of upgradeidis, bad spelling, take a peek at the x-over in my SF Grand Pianos and let me know which caps and resistors I should think on upgrading. It's funny the SFGPD's sound so damn good but I can't leave well enough alone sometimes. Oh well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At a bare minimum, all the blue caps and the block resistors.

    Yes, I love the MR series in speakers and electronics.

    As for your SFs, I would either need the boards or speakers in hand or a schematic.

    I'd leave the block resistors alone as they appear to be in the bass section.

    Maybe I'll pull one of the drivers and take a closer look at what's what. So the blue rectangular things are capacitors?

    When ya coming up to RI? This summer would be great. We live real close, a mile, to some of the nicest beaches on the east coast and striper fishing is awesome. We also go harvest clams during the day and eat them as soon as we get home, does not get better than that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am probably going to start a new thread on this topic once I get better pictures and put better information.

    I have a feeling the MR BLUE will perform a little better from what I have read anyway.

    That's my experience as well.

    As for visiting RI this summer, I'll be lucky to leave LI at all.

    MR BLUE is larger than the dynamicaps but will fit fine so I am going to go with them.

    As for visiting this summer that's understandable but you have an open invite if you want to get away for a couple days. Anne Marie knows this whole area like the back of her pretty hand and its a beautiful place with lots to do, that's why I am living here.
