Default cap for adding offset before adc - but which cap in signal path??

hey there,

my name is tommy, i'm from germany. i'm new to this community.
i'm building an audio interface (with the AK5394A). there's an evaluation board (take a look at this PDF, page 27) which show some caps in series prior to the last opamp stage (C19, C22, C23, C26). i read some articles about caps in a signal path in series and how strongly they can influence the sound, but i'm really wondering which caps i should use. what do you guys suggest? what would you take? there are so many opinions out there... need some advice.

thanks a lot in advance!

Use a high quality electrolytic such as Nichicon FG or MUSE or something from Jensen and you'll be fine.
