I looked at the math involved (never my strong point)

Think i'll just fit the specified cap and compare SQ - later.

World cup football (soccer) starting now on tv and cold beer in fridge. Much less taxing on the brain

Commercial equipment employs this technique sometimes.

It's trivial algebra that can be calculated with an engineering calculator.

I should just about get my head around the maths. It would probably be more entertaining than the bloody awful opening ceremony I just watched. To think they actually paid someone to come up with that!

Mathematics? No.

1 / [ 2*Pi*R*C ]
That is primary school arithmetic.

Pi ~ 3.14
R ~ input impedance of the amplifier
C ~ your chosen input capacitor in Farads (1uF = 0.000001F)

If the frequency is one decade below your required bandwidth then you have arrived.
