Building 24V PSU for preamp use
48 VDC could be lethal, but not at the currents we're talking about. It's in case of a failure which delivers 230VAC on one of the outputs.

I was pretty lackadaisical about 3-prong outlets when I lived in the States, but I don't think I would be in a 230 VAC mains country. While you're at it, fix those outlets too!

The PE in the living room has been on my whish list.....
I also sometimes use my 300B amp which runs with 550 VDC and with 420 VAC from the trafo. 900 uF and 550 VDC can "do something"...….at least a burn mark. It is a bad smell of burned meat….so I have seen and smelled what happens…...but it was not my "meat"….or my amp.....it was a capacitor in a flash....so "only" about 400 VDC and 220 uF.
