Eros 2 Output Caps Typo?
« on: March 18, 2020, 11:10:20 AM »
The EROS 2 Schematic shows the output caps to be 1.0 uf, 400V. But the parts list shows no 1.0 uf caps and list 2 - 0.1 uf, 400V. caps. Do we have a wandering decimal? Which is right?

1.0μF is correct. The parts list has a few typos, if I remember correctly.

You can search for my posts with the word Eros in them. Display those as messages. I believe I found two or three more: one related to the Zener diode, another one about the circuit diagram. I have no clue, if any of those have been fixed in the meantime.

I would guess that you purchased this kit before October of 2019, as that omission has been corrected.

The schematic, the parts provided with your kit, and the instructions in the manual will all call for the 1.5uF Solen caps.

Actually I just submitted my order today and downloaded the manual this afternoon. I also noticed the Solen 1.5 uf, 630 V. caps on page 73 in the picture of the finished amp.

These are the output coupling caps.  The 1uF cap was a part we carried for an older version of the SEX amp, and when the newer version of the kit went to 1.5uF, we included that part in the Eros as well.  Anything from 1uF to 3.3uF in that position works quite nicely.
