New electrolytic capacitors for the amplifier power supply filtering (& reservoir) in the following Bang & Olufsen models:
The original capacitors have a limited life-span, and even if the vast majority of the original components fitted by Bang & Olufsen proved to be of a very high quality, providing surprisingly good performance for decades, they are all now more than 40 years old.
If not already replaced it’s safe to say that all Beomasters of the above mentioned types would benefit from having their filter capacitors replaced by now.
This kit contains a pair of factory new capacitors in superb quality to replace the old and dried out components (component designators 0C7, 0C8).
Custom manufactured exclusively for Beoparts-shop.com these are slit-foil type electrolytic capacitors of the correct diameter and with the correct solder lug type for easy fitting inside the Beomaster.
In other words, these are direct replacements.
Slit-foil electrolytics is the absolute best choice for hardworking areas like power supplies in HiFi products where every detail counts in every part of the product, so slit-foil capacitors is the obvious choice for the filtering job in the above mentioned models.
The slit-foil construction eliminates the eddy currents forming on the foil surfaces of conventional capacitors.
This means less loss and better response.
It also means, that these capacitors are not just replacements. They are in fact improvements.
Further to this, the new capacitors maximum voltage rating was upgraded a little from 35V to 50V and their capacitance was increased a little as well, allowing a bit more head-room and a healthy increase in expected lifespan.
One kit contains two capacitors. Enough for one Beomaster.
These are direct replacements for original Bang & Olufsen part# 4200305
