Any clue what kind of capacitor or value this is? The top blue rectangle....

Going by the symbol on the capacitor, it's an Epcos/ TDK. Probably MKP. Possibly 2.2uf. All of their newer film cap part numbers begin with a "B", so the" Z" number didn't return any hits. That said, many of the Chinese knockoffs have a Z part number, so if this is in an Asian product, could be a Epcos clone.

Hi Dan. Thanks for the info. Was also able to get the full details here
Can someone identify this part?

which includes the reference sheet

interestingly (as I also posted there) the “upgraded“ version of the amp uses Mundorf MCap EVO 4.7uf caps, while everything else is the same. Could this smaller/cheaper 22uf cap be replaced with a 2.2, 3.3, or 4.7? Seems the 4.7 is larger than the 22
