RE: Troubleshooting a JE Labs 300b amp

The coupling cap is an Angela Instruments/Jensen copper in oil.
Given the responses I've seen, I think it is prudent to replace the coupling and bypass caps in both amps.
After reading through a lot of posts last night, electrolytic bypass caps look to have fallen out of favor. Are there caps out there that are well regarded for the bypass position, and hopefully not as physically large as the P/S caps? Current bypass caps are a 47uf/160V and a 100uf/100V, Black Gates.
