Success with new caps
I O'scoped the system as a whole
Siver Sonic T-14
PSB Century 400
and saw no obvious indications of ringing/oscillations/etc.
(I also checked on the power supply)
so I removed all of the orange drop caps and replaced with much smaller panasonic ECQP polypro and ECWF Met.Polypro.
These also are nothing fancy, but this has made a significant change for the better, female vocals are significantly more 'up front'. In general the sound is much less irritating. So I don't know if the improvement is simply due to the change in caps, or if by changing them out I eleminated the long lead-lengths and stiffened the attachment. (As I mentioned the orange-drop were too big for the board layout). It could also be a little bit of both. In any case things are that much closer to fine. Of course things will never be perfect, otherwise I'd be out of a hobby!
Is it typical for a simple swap of primarily bypass caps to have such a strong impact?
Thanks again to all who offered advice. It has been greatly appreciated and I can only hope to return the favor.

This could be the result of both. But like i stated IMHO orange drops are not good and i dont see what so many High End Audio people see in them.
