    The title contains the question - How much effect on sound and reliability does changing C1 & C2 from 0.1uf  to 0.22uf have?

    Why, you ask?   I just happen to have a few really good 0.22uf caps that I'd like to use if possible (same ones I used for the coupling caps).  Not sure I have enough to run them in series to get closer the value (I have 2 Dyna-VTA 70s), plus they're already fairly large for the space, and I don't want to butcher it by forcing 4 of these in there.  

    As always, TIA!  (still loving the amps!)

    should make no difference, it won't help, but shouldn't hurt

    Thank you. Not planning on doing it any time soon, but perhaps someday I'll give it a try.
