I recently broke a Nichicon 100µF 10v Fine Gold High-Grade Audio Capacitor off my motherboard's audio circuit and replaced it with a generic 100µF 50v capacitor I found at a local electronics store that best matched its dimensions. The new capacitor is rated for 115C vs 85C for the old one so I assume the quality is the same if not better.
However, upon testing my front audio connection I am noticing an extreme imbalance in my left and right audio channels. The left channel is nearly imperceptible and the difference is too large to overcome through balancing controls in my audio drivers.
Could this have been caused by not replacing my capacitor with an identical type? From some searching, I was given the impression that as long as I kept the capacitance constant I could increase the voltage rating when replacing a capacitor.
