RE: I think there are better caps than the Solens . .

You are right in that there are better caps than solens but for bypass and filtering,the larger solens are decent..I will not use them in the audio path but I use them in speaker crossovers where no DC is present and there the larger values sound ok also,,Martin Logan uses one big solen in their 130k dollar Statement speakers in the bass crossover..
