Default WE91 ps caps

The "Angela 91" calls for the following caps in the power supply:
Oil/Polyprop. 15uF/600VDC, 1.75" mount
Oil/Polyprop. 30uF/600VDC, 1.75"
Oil/Polyprop. 50uF/515VDC, 2.50"

That's one each per monoblock; my amigos and I are looking at an order of 98 of these capacitors. We're in Canada. Would like to stay away from polyprop, but the oil caps (from Angela) would run us quite a bit of $.. it's proving though to find other sources though.

Any suggestions?

Noam

I have heard from several sources that they sound really good.
I know people in the Netherlands that are using these caps religiously. I am going to use them in a preamp and I think that the prices are pretty good. Now don't forget to get the clips that go with them to connect them to the chassis.

Uncle Jun is dat you?

Thanks for the comments; you're right, Angela's prices aren't too bad.. we're just trying to save some money and import costs/hassles if possible.

Yes - get electrolytics, and save about 80%. Because if I did a blind listening test for you, you'd never be able to pick which was which.
