Default Why do some manufacturers wrap the electrolytic capacitor that gets the hottest in a switching power supply in shrink wrap?

"Jeff Liebermann"

Electrolytic caps do not normally get hot. There is a temperature
rise equal to the ripple current times the square of the ESR
(equivlent series resistance).

** Wanna try that again ??

Pro audio is the same as consumer audio, except for the price tag and
the hype.

** Only true of most Chinese made stuff.
