Anyway it's worth a try and there's probably a little too much gain anyway.

Keep in mind Zout wil be about double the current value: 900 Ohm becomes 1K8 which could be a problem when driving loads smaller than say 20K.

Cheers,
No Frank LOL. I'm not going to presume to claim to have the experienced ear that you do. My opinion and advice was that of a novice. No sarcasm implied, nor I hope, perceived.

Nah, of course not....I must say the electrolytics have much improved over the passed 10 years or so.
Thank god for that...

Still, to give a quick and dirty description of the effect: slowed down transient response, slightly blurred treble, bloated soggy bass...amongst others.

OTOH, it is good practice to design one way or the other.
By which I simply mean that the side effects of leaving the cap out aren't just sonic in nature but also have electrical repercussions.

Cheers,
