Default Which replacement caps for 47uF/16V non-polar?

I want to replace the output capacitors in my MF A3 CD. They're Teapo 47uF/16V non-polar electrolytic. I've thought of Black Gate 47uF/50V N-series non-polars, but what other, possibly better choices are there? I'm hoping for a warm, full sound.

If the value of the electrolytic is correct, theoretically there should be exact reproduction. Some capacitors vary in the amount of current they can pass and the internal impedance but if we are talking line level and above 75R impedance, I doubt you will notice any difference between a Babycon standard type and a super special overpriced gold plated ripoff type. One looks more expensive and so by default 'must be better'. Not the correct answer at all!
