Default PS vs Silver Mica -- which do u prefer?

Polystyrene or dipped silver mica caps -- which would you prefer to use (and why) in tube and discrete phono RIAA amp applications?

Polystyrene. MIT RTX especially offers great value for money. All the silver mica i've tried doesn't fit either my ears or my system. It adds no perceptible blur, sounds fast and cohesive but adds a very unpleasant metalic sheen. And no, it is not the rest of my system which generates this sheen.
