FC caps - well I have a drawer with 10u/22u/47u that rarely get used -
then 100u/220u (25V) - I put a pair of 220u 25vs on the power rails of
each module so that's prob 98% of the FCs I use
UES - 10u/22u/47u (35v ones, I think).
Yeah, I do wonder if they're worth it but they're not too pricey & I'm
sure there were some details in Doug Self's book that made me think it
was worth it.
I'm fairly KISS (keep it simple) so happy to have made a choice for a
limited range of good quality parts that I know I can obtain relatively
easily for reasonable costs.
The UES ones are quite big in size (though think in part that is due to
bipolar) and the green does look nice ;)
