RE: Paralleling K40Y-9 capacitors

Paralleled pairs of 0.47 μF. K40s will be fine. "Smearing" may be an issue, when a big cap. is bypassed by a smaller part and the dielectrics are different.

Guess why I advocate bypassing large valued metalized polypropylene signal caps. with 10% 716P series "orange drops". ;>)
