    Anyone replace the caps in a 3-6 AES board.

    Did anyone who replaced the caps in a 3-6 board, really notice any difference in the sound quality?

    WTF did I do that? The audio for certain explosions or sound effects was off. The board did get a repair job previously after I purchased it. Just curious on anyone else's experience after replacing the caps?

    I've only done a few, all below the cart slot, but I plan to do them all. I do a few and then rest to verify nothing was damaged. The AES solder points are a bitch to remove compared to fixing a cart lol.

    If you replace the caps with good replacements with same specs, it shouldn't degrade the audio quality.

    I would like to get my hands on the proper cap kits for the 3-6 board as well, as I bought a few kits for the first revision AES (NEO-AES), and I also changed out the resistors in the back of the unit by the RGB lines and the improvement in pic quality was outstanding afterward. However, I can't find any place that sells these cap kits as packs for every model AES, and since I now plan to attempt to buy at least one AES of every revision, I would like to get cap kits for each model. Can anyone recommend a place that sells them for every unit, as well as upgrades for the RGB lines to improve on the picture quality? I really enjoy working on them, and this will give me something to do while waiting on other things to arrive.
