It's good to have plenty of capacitance available, but not necessarily in the form of the biggest capacitors. For example, Classe had a design philosophy at one point (and perhaps still now) to use many small capacitors, which some listeners felt was the foundation for a more delicate, detailed sound. The idea was that many small capacitors could deliver current when needed and where needed more quickly than a few big capacitors. I am not an electrical engineer, and I don't know if this makes sense, but I do recall reading about it. If true, this would suggest that larger does not necessarily equal better for capacitors.
