RE: Paralleling K40Y-9 capacitors

Lowering the ESR of filter caps in PSUs is regarded as a good idea. Why?

Paralleling signal caps is unnecessary. IMO a mixture of types in valve circuit sounds better, and NFB (shock horror NFB!!!!!) caps should be the best you can afford, say commercial MF teflons.

I'm never going to use PIOs, burp, fart, banggg, was my one experience,and it was enough. PCBs are another reason.

LBNL I'm not into tone controls, except the tilt types in pre-amps which make sense, and work well to boot.
