I have seen motherboards advertised with solid electrolyte capacitors.
Anybody tried those in audio use?

The solid polymer, and hybrid polymer are great for digital circuits, not so much with analog.

Tantalum caps have a relatively flat impedance curve, if something like that is ever needed, then they could be handy.
