Default Different value for .47uf coupling cap

I am trying to get four .47uf Hovland (18.00USD) of these from Madisound but found a few .33uf and .56uf Mundorf supreme for sale at a good price.

My question is can .33uf or .56uf does as good a job as .47uf cap?
The supreme are at 11.00 and 13 respectively.

Maybe. .56 is closer to .47 than .33, and wont roll off bass. It depends on the resistance in the circuit whether .33 is ok.
Be sure your foil hat has a good low impedance ground.

I think you should say yes, and post your schematics to make sure.
