Default Arcotronics caps

Has anybody tried the Arcotronics MKP C.4G capacitors?

I brought a few 1.5uf and 10uf cheap at a radio rally and wondered if these are any good for coupling

I used this type as a coupling cap (ZEN amp), 5uF/700 Volt replacing a Solen/SCR MKP of 8,2uF/400 Volt, and I can only recommend them. My subjective impression is that they are noticeably better than the pretty common SCRs, more neutral and open, and also faster.
