Default Camp Amp and power supply

Bought some pcb of the amp camp/camp amp and wonder if it is a good idea to put some capacitors between the laptop psu and the pcb?
I have a lot of Rifa 4700mF I could use..

Many switching power supplys don't like to see large capacitors on the output. When they try to start up, the capacitance looks like a short so the supply quickly shuts off. Your results will vary depending on the supply you use. See the discussion in the sticky ACA thread around post 1970.

I have 4700uF after SMPS PSU (laptop brick) and it sounds much better than with 10uF. I don´t know why it is, but difference is like night and day.
