I've noticed that certain types of capacitors seem to be used more commonly in certain applications. I've got a few over-sized 1uf PET caps that are a little too large for the application I originally got them for, and I should have enough spares to build this power supply design:
On the other hand, I've never seen anyone use anything but electrolytic caps in power supplies (and in general nothing but PET and other plastic capacitors for audio use, other than a handful of tantalum capacitors). Would it be OK? I'm feeding it off a switch mode power supply, and I'd like to get as clean an output as possible.
