Yep, that's similar to what I use for screen bypass. Unfortunately, those 1000Vers are only 0.5uF... I'd need 100 for each driver PS node and 250 for the output stage. It could be expensive and difficult to fit into the chassis.

Oh that's right. I got that one to use as part of a hum cancel network in old RCA amps,
Thre original capacitor leaked an actual puddle of oil under the amp. My quest to replace like with like ended with those caps, and I was nicely surprised with how they tested so well.
They do have more appropriate values for filter networks. I have seen 10uf and 20uf at reasonably high voltages. I don't think you could design a whole amp around them but they're high enough to be usefully incorporated as elements of a filter network.
