Hi all.
I'm starting to restore this portable set.
There are 3 electrolytic caps. 80 uf at 150v, 30 uf at 150v and 300 uf at 15v(fifteen).
Can I replace the 300uf with a 330uf at 50v cap?
Thanks,

Carlos

Yes. In general, with electrolytics you can use a cap with up to 1.5x the original value with no problem. For the voltage rating, anything equal or higher is ok.
