RE: I did not accuse you of being hyperbolic in your love of capacitance

Tweeky's system by his own admission uses a Brick Wall Surge Suppressor, see https://www.brickwall.com/pages/how-it-works

This contains a large inductor. Most of us are not silly enough to add inductance to our power lines like this. Even fairly small inductors have a detrimental effect on SQ in my experience.

But this might explain why he needs these 10uF caps across the line, to try to take away some of the negative effects of the inductive line supply. Kludge upon kludge.
