RE: Do you know the best way to shield the coupling cap ?

The only place I have ever seen a shielded coupling
cap in an audio application was in the old German
table and console radios made by companies such as
Grundig,Blaupunkt and Metz.Usually they had copper
foil wrapped tightly around the cap and the foil
was grounded.Anyone who has ever owned one of these
radios knows they sound awesome but I would certainly
not call the sound audiophile accurate.
Would wrapping your coupling caps tightly with
copper foil and grounding it affect the sonics of your
amp?Who knows.You will just have to try it out and see
for yourself.You might just discover something interesting.
