I recommend Digikey. Lots of stock and super fast shipping. Like, the next morning fast shipping.

Parts Connexion is great for boutique and audiophile specialty products, but if you're looking for parts to recap or perform general repairs, Digikey is my go to place. Even if Parts Connexion has the parts you need, Digikey's shipping is way faster and about half the price.

but if just a p/s can the local shop supply something close? higher voltage is no biggie... slightly higher capacitance may not be an issue either.

whatcha workin on?

Solen.ca do have them;

Otherwise Digikey.ca is the way to go, they also have choice audio grade caps like the one suggested from Solen.ca

Good luck.

Are you doing just the power supply?
How close can you get locally?
Ime, lower makes er a bit faster. Higher increased bottom end.

Starting with the PS. It is a nice old amp but on start up it flickers on the meters and makes weird crackling sounds through the speakers. Since it is about 40 yrs old, it probably needs more work, but when it settles down, it sounds pretty good.

Hmmm... 2 routes....

Order parts required to do a complete restoration if that's yer end goal or just recap the p/s and cross yer fingers.
Voltage no lower than rated, capacitance within 20% if u can. Given a 20% tolerance on old caps I assume u should have no worries.
Other options too...multiple caps to get yer number of room not an issue. Some prefer this over one big cap.

Thanks for the help, I found 63 volt in the right can size on Amazon for $4.70 each. There is limited room.
