Does anyone here have a source for capacitance load plugs for a preamp? I have a rebuilt preamp that uses them to more accurately load the cart and I have misplaced them in my house somewhere. I imagine this is a very uncommon item but I figured if anyone would know it would be the fine folks on ARSC. They are RCA and I need 330pf and 470pf.
