One easy thing to try is to listen to the noise floor by cranking up the amp while the SB is idle. Any half-decent amp will reveal minute differences in the source noise level. If you hear a beating or humming noise, you may want to add shielding around those caps. It's best to compare with an unmodded Squeezebox, but it's worth testing to see if any noise at all can be reduced with simple foil shielding or rearraging of the leads.

Thanks for the great post.
Seeing how you left the opamp in there, I wonder if a switch could be wired in to allow selecting between the coupling caps and an upgraded opamp. It would seem to be the best of both worlds, as well as adding a phase toggle in effect.
Of course any tips on how this might be executed would be appreciated :-)
