Yes the same with Nichicon kz Muse
I keep the silmic 2 in opposite serie low-level voltage (DC stopper and to pad off brightness )

Signal path - None.
But if I have to, then Nichicon KG at one value down from calculated plus Elna Silmic at 20% of that value in parallel (plus a Vishay MKP1837 10-150nF polyprop in parallel if more "air" is needed).

Cathode bypass - Nichicon S6 are good Kbypass caps for dirt cheap money . So are Elna RBS (bi-polar Silmic). If I need a really big value, I'll use a Dubilier 7P series - (any of the above usually get bypassed with a Vishay film).
My personal fave: Rubycon TWL bypassed with a Russian MBGO-2 Paper-In-Oil.

Power supply -
Low voltage (<20V): Nichicon S6 (or HT) series
Mid voltage (20-100V): Nichicon HE + small-value PIO, polyprop, or teflon
High-voltage tube supply: Nichicon KX, BHC Aerovox, or Rifa 'lytic for high values (bypassed with Solen PBB "Fastcap")
If I don't need a high value (such as 2nd cap in CLC), I'll use a PIO motor start or a Wima DCP5

My findings :

Power Supply :
Panasonic FC or Panasonic FR, always best
(Nichicon Types (KG / KZ) fail in my case)

Signal Path :
If Elko is need :
Elna Silmic II very good
(Nichicon Types (KG / KZ) fail in my case)

If MKP than
Mundorf Suprem

Both Elkos and MKP bypass with KP1832 are very supremely improve
