Default ELNA Capacitors from china

Hello,
I would like to know if there is any danger in ordering these:
2pcs,ELNA 50V 2200uF 105 Electrolytic capacitors 18X26mm,3412 | eBay
as main filter caps for a hifi solid state stereo amplifier?

Can parts from china be trusted, including this specific seller?

Thank you in advance.

The supplier is in China .. home of counterfeit components !!!

Read the feedback and make your choice !!!

legit Elna from China, 2200uf main filtering caps for amplifier, hifi? choose 1
Elna usually comes from thailand, at least that's what they wrote on the bags i've got.
Here i get the legit audio caps - SOCKETS,CONNECTORS,TERMINAL B., SMD,RADIAL CAPACITORS items in EUROSEMICONDUCTOR store on eBay!
At least for me they seem legit.

Look for panasonic FC, TS-UP for such duty, they aren't pricey that much, and they worth the price... Look for US sellers, never had a trouble - everything is original and sometimes cheaper than China too.
2200uF? I hope you'll parallel them to get into >10.000uF range, or your amplifier is for headphones...
