Of course this has been tested, but source impedance of the MICBIAS voltage 
regulator which is also creating the ripple (totem pole output it seems) is 
so low we needed a 860uF and even then there was buzz left. To form a decent 
lowpass filter for ripple we need to have some R between C and MICBIAS
