Notes about C7:
The circuit board has holes for up to six 18mm C7 capacitors or nine 12.5mm capacitors. They are not intended to be all filled with large value capacitors. The total capacitance should not exceed around 3000µF. If you use only three capacitors, install one adjacent to each amplifier block.
There is no benefit in using more capacitance than recommended. The reason for providing so many capacitor positions is to accommodate different physical capacitor sizes, and allow for paralleling many smaller-value capacitors to achieve the desired total capacitance. Some "boutique-grade" capacitors have large body dimensions for the amount of capacitance in each unit.
