**  Todd -- Shorting a charged HV filter-C to chassis-ground can damage 
an amplifier's metering circuitry.  Instead of a shorting-stick, I use a 
discharge-stick with a 100W, 1000-ohm series resistor to limit peak 
current as the filter-C discharges.  Always pull the mains plug unless 
you are in a big hurry to meet Jesus and his mom.
