    I have a Pioneer SA-530 amplifier that sounded great until
    about two weeks ago when a capacitor blew up . I removed the
    capacitor from the board and it is an electrolytic rated 42 volts 5600
    uf with three leads. The problem is I cannot locate this part on the
    internet and Radio Shack does not carry it . Also there is a second
    electrolytic with the same ratings in the unit , should I also replace
    this one ?

    I would really like to get this unit up and running again so I
    deeply appreciated any respones .

  2. Use a higher capacitance if such a part is easier to find, maybe a pair of
    4700 in parallel if there is enough space. The second one might be in a
    similar condition (shortly before blowing), replace it too. Those caps seem
    to belong to the power supply, so a couple of many uf more or a couple uf
    less will hardly matter, the two caps should be equal however. Note also
    that if you find an approprate part with two leads, just connect it. The
    third one is no use anyway (unless of course it is two caps in a common
    enclosure, but I don't think it is).
