I see. I usually heard of Nichicon in the context of working parameters [*], not necessarily as those that last longest but maybe the two go hand in hand. > http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=414&page=7 Thanks. > On 2017-02-26, at 07:50, Gerrit Heitsch <email@example.com> wrote: > > Rubycon are known to last. Then there is Chemicon, they have this empty rectangle logo. SUN was using them both in their systems and while I have seen a lot of dead SUN systems over the years, I haven't seen one where the capacitors where the problem. That's a good indicator. > On 2017-02-26, at 10:57, Justin Cordesman <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > I've been using Rubycon and Panasonic based on optimizing for service hours and temperature, and buying milspec whenever it is an option. On a GRiD I repaired recently I was able to replace motherboard electrolytic caps with ceramic equivalents so there are no electrolytic caps at all on the motherboard anymore. Rubycon repeats.. I was wondering whether not to advice replacing those wet caps with polymer ones? Any cons for a hardware like this? -- SD! * - got a friend who replaced (I think) all the caps in his amplifier, player and some more to Nichicon and insists that the equipment's output now sounds "so much better" :-) Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2017-02-26 14:00:02
