Today I received a reply that my unit has standard Panasonic CE caps, and his MkII has audio grade Nichicon gold FW caps. In the SMSL ad they describe "audio-specific capacitors" and "Fever-grade ingredients!". Purchased mine from the US Amazon SMSL Factory Store. I took the picture of mine and posted it, because I just don't trust these companies. Will dig a little more. To think it could sound even better?

Nichicon audio caps

Panasonic CE caps

Nichicon Fakes ??  The ripple on the top wrap seems 'unusual'.
Can you find the cap on Mouser etc and compare ?
