Default Line stage cap recommendations

Building a borberly line stage that has an output cap as well as coupling cap. Thinking of 1uf/.1uf combo. I would appreciate any recommendations or experiences. Considered Obbligato film/oil cap with Obb premium gold.

Why not use the same like Erno Borbely: Mundorz ZN Polypropylene + tin foil?

Obbligato are metallized so better Mundorf tin foil.

BTW the best caps are teflon film & copper foil but for PS too expensive.

The Obbligatos I am using for main output cap is metal film in oil. It is not on PS but on the output of the linestage.

If you can't afford only teflon, my advice 1uF Auricap bypassed 0.1uF Teflon FT-3.

If you have the Obbligatos on hand try to bypass with these teflons & let me know?
