I dont know if it is relevant but I had a problem when direct coupling Ventus with my power amp.
There was a hum. The problem solved when I used a tin foil capacitor.
But I prefer the sound without the capacitor
Just do not connect ground between legato and your power amp. Without ground, there is no DC, and no problems.

They were originally intended for a loudspeaker crossover, and are of course not needed for a low cutoff.

You need to know the input impedance of the next stage to calculate the correct cap value.

I used film and foil 1n0 polystyrenes from RIFA type PFE210.
For space reasons they are both on the underside and on the upper side.

Yep, it is a RC HP-filter of the 1st order with a cut-off at (2*pi*15u * 10k)^-1 = 0.94 Hz (-3dB). I could even use a 1uF cap but they are a bit costly and as I had three different pairs of VSF caps in the range 8u2 - 15u in my drawer, I just put the 15uF in and listened.

I have also tried the red-brown russian PIO // russian Teflon caps but the VSF is better, IMO.

Thanks. I've just put some rifa pfr 2n2s in last night, but I'm not convinced. Sounds a bit flat and lifeless. Will have to try the pfes. I'm trying to resist ordering relcaps as I just can't justify the cost, but the niggle to try will never go away...
