I have recently completed the 306 dada revision in full with the exception of the main power supply capacitors. I plan to use 6800Uf 63V and would like you recommendations on the best caps for this purpose. Do you recommend by passing these with small film caps and if so what type and value would be suitable.

Opinions vary but I use Kemet BHC. I think the 306 has snap-ins, so RS part #434-0778 would be suitable.

Thanks for the information. On the subject of bypassing these with small fim caps, do you recommend and if so what type and value. Do you stock these caps in the DaDa web shop?

Bypassing with say 1uF was practised a decade or two ago, but capacitors have improved so much with rising CPU bandwidths that it's pretty obsolete. If you want to try it there are film capacitors in the Webshop here.
