From FS Elka Synthex thread

Postby rjd2 » Fri Sep 02, 2011 1:39 pm

hey, would you mind doing me a huge favor? sorry to pipe in here, but i see you have a synthex out with a tech, and seeing as how these instruments are so rare, it would be REALLY hugely helpful if you ask him just one simple question:

on the PSU, what size bypass caps are #1 and #2? on my synthex, they were 10,000uf. but the schematics read 1,000uf. i have found a few other mistakes in the schematics, so i really need to find another synthex to find out what they SHOULD be. thanks so much!

also, good luck with your sales.

Those caps come right off the rectifier to flatten the chopped AC signal to DC. Larger caps there will just give you less ripple into the 723. It does not matter if they are a larger value. Smaller capacitance is just cheaper, and that's why they're used in PSUs.
