Of course, I am in no position to say that more capacitance does not sound better

But consider also that as you add capacitance, the impedance between the hot and neutral AC line at 60Hz, the mains frequency, will go down in direct proportion. I don't know what bad things might happen as Z gets extremely low, but it might be something you want to consider. For example, the Z of your 10uF capacitor at 60Hz is (only) 265 ohms. And of course, you REALLY don't want to use large value caps between hot and ground or neutral and ground, as I think you know.
