We're on the same page Blitz. We all strive to make our system as transparent as we can & yet making sound as realistic to our ears as possible. Hence the whole system from source to speakers has to work in synergy. We can't escape from not having components affecting sound. The better way to look at this is to understand the sonic characteristic of each component, capitalize on it to tweak & balance out the sound that we're looking for.
As for me say capacitors, I never use 1 brand or 1 type rather I use different caps or brands for different locations. What caps I want to use I already know its signature but that does not mean it'll sound perfect wherever I place them, for this reason I would have to test with different caps to hear its effect. Needless to say it is a very long & tedious way but for me this is the only way to achieve what Im looking for. There's no such thing as 1 cap for all, what sounds good at 1 location may only be so so on another.

Cheers

Was it the same layout and did you keep pictures of both?

The one towards ground at the tail of a feedback resistors network that differentiates DC to AC feedback ratio in solid state amps? Prefer non polar there.

You are listening to the power supply. So I consider the entire power supply in the signal path.

Okay, thank you Salas. That one is not expensive, hopefully I can find it (locally). And better than my current stock which is Elna RJH.

BTW, I have several NP/BP (most popular is the green Nichicon Muse-BP) but they are not better than RJH.
