Like a 3 volt p-p signal riding on 6 volts of DCOne evening, listening to the Television sound through a stereo amp (50W)
and speakers the amp died - smoke and flames. Took the lid off, and all
that had happened was a 0.1uF disc ceramic decoupler had gone short and
crowbarred the power supply. There was enough energy in the smoothing caps
to incinerate it after the fuse had blown (around 20J).
