RE: what do you look for in the graphs?

"But then there are the designers who claim too much capacitance ruins the sound."

Presumably such designers are finding that they prefer the sound they get when they effectively introduce a tone control by means of limiting the low-frequency response of the amplifier, achieved by causing the power-supply impedance to become non-negligible at low frequencies. That is fine, if that is the sound colouration that they like. But there must surely be better ways of introducing a tone control for the amplifier than this.

I have nothing against tone controls, but I would think it is better to use a well-designed device with convenient adjustments available for personal taste, rather than a fixed low-frequency fall-off whose slope might, or might not, be to the individual listener's liking.
