eh? THE ABBOT.
Hi- I have a wee bit of general distortion I think mainly in the HF of one (RH) elderly now es14 spkr. I find an electrolytic Alcap 3uf. So prob worth trying a new pair as poss dried or drifted out unlike if Id found a film type. Alcaps n/a in 3uf now afict tho, so should I just go 3uf polypropylene? or 3u3 or 2u2? (oddly, others' es14's I read have either of these value caps in/ bennic  poly jobs too rather than alcaps.

Anyone know if mine suggest a later, or earlier es14 with a blue 'lytic  3u Alcaps in?

Thanks, Abbot

i replaced the bennic electrolytic in mine with a Mundorf silver/gold oil cap. Sounded different but then i didn't match the esr which probably needed half an ohm or suchlike throwing in there.
