Firing up the amplifier without PSU caps would be a bad idea, as they make the rectifier output into DC

Click the image to open in full size.

You'd end up feeding the amplifier with the signal at the bottom of that image. Not a good idea.

Probably would let out the magic smoke if I were to power it up without the caps based on that waveform. Thanks guys. I prefer to keep my electronics non smoking
