100 uf would be to big, 2uf in a quality cap would be better. I use 
tantalum but poly would be best. I recall the cap as really not 
needed if you short the channels. You may wish to try a metal film 
resister on one channel so that you have high and low gain channel to 
choose from.  I would guess that 5,000 to 10,000 ohms would be about 
right but that is a educated guess right now.
