Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

No flame wars here...

Everyone has their favorite caps when it comes to sound. I'm aware that the factory caps are mylar, but I was only questioning if the cap was more crucial to audio vs. just a decent cap that had the required capacitance to combine with the resistor value to come as close to 75us as possible. I have ordered some polystyrene film and foil as that is what I saw you used. If the stock caps are on spec then I might just leave them in as the tuner sounds really good right now. I have read that mylar does have a tendency to go out of spec with age. That's my next project. Thanks!
