Default X2 MKP mains cap for signal coupling

IS there anything wrong in using MKP X2 caps usually used for mains EMI suppression as signal coupling caps in audio?

I guess it is only a bit wider tolerance that might be an issue?

Tolerance shouldn't be an issue unless you are using it to define an exact frequency . As input coupling cap it should be fine.

All makes of X2's do not sound the same ! Do some comparative listening tests. If you don't , they will still be OK !
