It's likely your now quieter (less ps ripple) amp is revealing upstream (source) deficiencies.

Either it's me or caps ''breaking in'' (20 x 2200uf Panasonic FR) but its sounding a lot better after using for a while.
The sound improves as volume goes up now, the opposite effect to before.

It's the break-in of the capacitors.

Or possibly the break-in of your ears.

I do not understand ecap break in. If it is so, what is the mechanism and why would the manufacture not identify this phenomenon in the data sheets?

Perhaps a bit of reforming.

Read the mfr data sheets carefully, especially regarding storage, shelf life, testing, etc.
These things will be discussed.

Once the parts are made, they sit in mfr inventory, then in distributor inventory,
then in end user inventory, then inside the finished product in inventory.
This could be a year (or even several) of degradation due to non-operation.
