This for sure is not the reason I did not add capacitance.
Its simply because the amp I've build has been tested with a lots of different capacitance and has been discussed a lots too and the conclusion from quiet a lots of people is that the setup like P. Daniel has made sounds the best.

I maybe will try to add more but until now I'm very satisfied with the setup.

Did you ever try your amp with the same capacitance I use now? who knows it may sound better.

FYI, I also use a 500VA transformer but for only 2 LM4780 chips.

I've got a question.

At the moment I use Mission M52 speakers.
Some time ago I build different speakers:
Jack's Place - Vifa Basis 95 2.0

At that time I used hafler mono amps and it sounded great.

I wonder if the amp I build now (LM4780 parallel) will be able to drive them with satisfaction.

Is there any reasonable explanation for why it may sound better with an small capacitance?

This is one link of many discussions about it.:

my first try at a LM3886 layout, any comments/suggestions?

You are right, I'm sorry, if somebody still want to discuss the capacitance please open a new topic.

My first step into DIY audio! Finished it a few hours ago and I'm so pleased right now. It sounds great to me (and I have absolutely no good references before). I was worried about cooling not being enough, cooling grease running to the chip-pins, and noise from power supply, but there is pretty much no hum and it seems (so far) to be cool as well. Soo happy!!
