Hi,VISHAY MKP1837(+/-1%),VISHAY KP 1830(+/-1%) ranges are the most transparent and neutral I have tried.I am sure though there are others too.

Hi,try for AMPOHM FP-CA series of audio caps.This range will cover from 1uf up to 10uf (630V,+/-5%)
They are hand wound,and have very low ESR and low inductance.They are axial shape and fairly large.

If the original ELNA was a polarized type,I think it is better to use a polarized one.Nichicon MUSE are very good caps,but use a polarized one just to be safe
