Thanks for reply. Luckily, that's how I tacked them in, guessing the non-polar standard had a better than 50% chance of being right.

Are we talking power supply capacitor sound?
interesting :;

I have always thought these caps have not much with sound to do, at all.

Unless they are not there or not at a adequately high value of capacitance.
Or more then adequate. That is Sufficient for good supply filtering.

That's the common misconception. It is my experience that PS capacitors have similar effect on the sound as signal coupling caps. But it shouldn't be surprising, after all PS should be considereed to be in a signal path as well
