Dynaco / K40 PIO cap voltage effect on sound?

With the option of adding .22 uf 1000v K40 PIOs to the VTA Dynaco Mk IIIs, (currently enjoying .22 uf 400v K40s as output coupling cap)wondering what might be the pros/cons of going to the 1000v cap? (I gather from the archives that they may be slower to break in.)

If it's one of those subjective, YMMV-type benefits, then ok, I'm willing to take the empirical route. That said, before I tear into the current set up, I'm curious what sonic benefits, if any others might have found to derive from simply switching to the larger units.
