Default paralleling output coupling capacitors


Suppose I need an output coupling capacitor of 3uF value, can i parallel 3 1uF capacitors to get the 3uF?
Would it have any negative impact on the audio output?
I just happen to have a few Vishay MKT1817 1uF, two Jantzen 1uF and two Sprague VitQ 0.22uF, and don't really want to spend on shipping just to buy some 3.3uF caps (probably would buy Jantzens or Solens since they're the most my budget allows for).

If you have three of the Vishay's, I would parallel them; it should work fine.
