Default Axial Electrolytic Recommendations

Greetings To All,

I have an compex limiter that I am trying to find replacement axial electrolytic capacitors for. I want to re-cap the audio path. After much searching, it seems that high quality axial caps are just not around. Lots of radial choices, bot no axial. Can anyone shed some light or have any recommendations they can share?

Thanks for your time!

Thank you for the response lms,

This is for small signal coupling and de-coupling, for approx -10dbm level signals.

220uf@25v, 100uf @25v, 47uf@25v, 22uf@25v, 15uf@40v, these types.

And a quick look at Mouser for axials in stock:

25v caps
100uf - 19 choices
220uf - 8 choices
47uf - 6 choices
22uf - 5 choices

and 15uf/40v? No, but at 50v there are 4 choices

Brands include Vishay, Nichicon, Xicon.

Thank you all very much for your input. It is greatly appreciated!

When one talks of high end capacitors, Black Gate, Elna SILMIC, Nichicon MUSE, none of these are available in axial variety. I can find axial caps via Mouser, Digi-Key etc, etc. BUT, is there any high end axial caps out there comparable to the Black Gates, Elna, Nichicon?

I have not considered the Vishay, mmm. Will be looking into these guys.

Thanks again everybody! All input is good stuff!
