A4000 reversed audio caps

Hi All,

I was just watching this video (skip to 20:07)
[ Show youtube player ]

He says that the 2 polarised caps near the audio circuits are the wrong way around. I checked both my A4000s and they are the same. I measure -1V too.

Is this a known problem?

Great vid BTW (see part 1 also)

Yes, this is a common issue. Since the voltage is low, I'm not sure how much it matters, but those caps do seem to die earlier than the others.
