Rupert Neve Designs 5014-Failed Cap in The power filter

Neve 5014 failed cap repair

I am big fan of Rupert Neves stuff, and the Portico Series 5014 widener did not disappoint.  Great attention to detail in this box!

The unit had a bad cap in the switchmode power supply filter.

It looks like an impact failure, but hard to say.  I changed with the same value with a slightly higher voltage, and the unit seems to work.

Beautiful design!
