Will replaceing the disc coupling cap and some in the pre amp cercut help the tone out a bit? It is a mono se 6aq5 phono amp in a old school type player, It sounds good now but a little strong on the bass when driveing a heathkit ss1 and ss1b speaker and the highs are a bit thin too.

The coupling caps look like plain old small round and flat disk caps, I did replace them and the ones in the tone control with poly caps and it does sound a little better but gotta get some hours on it. oh and it is a se 6bq5 unit not a 6aq5, must of been tierd the other day lol.
