FWIW - those Red Chinese "Audiophiler" caps seem to measure well within the limits of my cheap ESR meter and their tolerance meets spec to boot. I don't know if they can be said to "sound good". Hopefully the OP's Audyn are better. I ordered a few Vishay DC-Link but DrLowMu apparently thinks they're not so hot.
I have tried them and they are pretty good, much better than the polyester caps.
The WIMA DC LINK four pin models, sound best of the DC LINKs to me and others.
In comparison, Vishays are described by some who have A-Bed the two types as sounding mushy, woolly and cheap.
Usually I employ multiple bypassing, with high quality under 1 uF film bypasses, by ear, in all cap positions. This is important in SET amps and in crossovers IMHO, if you want to play back audio wide band, and not lose the highs as they were originally recorded and played.
