I would love to think it will only cost $40 but shipping can be $15, and I don't think I can get 40 good quality Nichicons at today's prices. Which grade is recommended?
Most of the caps are not critical. Its just general purpose caps with the exception of the two coupling caps that are between the servo pickup head and the speed control microprocessor.
I ended up using Nichicon FGs for those two caps because that's what I had on hand. Any audio grade coupling caps should suffice. Please remember that I am talking about recapping a DP-62L but your table should be similar.
The people who posted about the circuit board being somewhat sensitive are correct. Heat the solder until it flows and immediately remove the iron. The traces tend to crack and cause all sorts of interesting issues if you overheat the solder joints.
