Default Nichicon KA - new at Mouser

Has anyone seen the new Nichicon KA caps at Mouser? Right off the bat I noticed rated at 105C. Someone got a scoop on these babies?

I got them now and will use them in the Richard Marsh headphone amp. I should post a pic for everyone. They have a nice blue-gray color to them. (not that the wrapping means anything!)

ok SO, I have them in my tubelab SE 300b, Thus far they seem to be quite reasonable however the amp is still breaking in. I also wonder if where I have used them really colours the sound all that much. ie Cathode of a 5842 to ground.

I am using them close to the output transistors. I'm wiring them from power rails to ground. I also have some Muse caps and will try them to see if I really discern some difference at all.

If you need a higher voltage, I've used these with great results.

Any new opinion about Nichicon KA caps ? Are they better or equal than Elna Silmic II ?
