Default Bipolar electrolytics

I am looking for small (4.7uF) bipolar electroytics to use in place of Blackgate N series caps. Nichicon makes the ES series -- anyone know of any others? Something from Elna perhaps, or any others?

Panasonic, recommended by Jensen for low distortion in audio coupling.

Since your value is low why not try metalised plastic film?

Interesting. I'll have to try those. I would usually use higher quality film caps, but I need someting physically very small and am really just curious to compare things to the blackgates.
