RE: Dynaco / K40 PIO cap voltage effect on sound?

For the same type of cap , same value but higher voltage , the dilectric is thicker . The size of the cap will increase as will the production cost . ESR will also increase

As for how a higher voltage caps sounds , that's up to the listener . I tend to use as small a cap as possible in terms of voltage rating as I tend to go for mylar/foil , paper/foil types which tend to be much larger than the typical modern metallised polypropylenes
