New electrolytic capacitors for the power supply filtering (& reservoir) in Bang & Olufsen Beomaster 4400.
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 and if not already replaced it’s safe to say that all Beomaster 4400s would benefit from having the filter capacitors replaced by now.
This kit contains a pair of factory new electrolytic capacitors in superb quality to replace the old and dried out components.
Custom manufactured exclusively for Beoparts-shop.com these are slit-foil type electrolytic capacitors with the correct capacitance and voltage rating, the correct solder lug type and the correct diameter to fit the original holder. 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 top-of-its-range Beomaster 4400.
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.
One set contains two capacitors. Enough for one Beomaster 4400.
These are direct replacements for original Bang & Olufsen part# 4200351 (10.000uF 50V).
(Component designators 0C8 and 0C9).
