I don't think it's a question of through-hole vs SMD. It's more like
ceramics vs something else (film, in this case). It *is* interesting,
though. Behri never advertised this capacitor change AFAIK, so I wonder if
maybe they just weren't entirely sure which to use yet. Personally, I've
never found a filter where yellow, box/film sounded better than C0Gs. If I
decide it's worth voiding the warranty, I would try polypropylene in mine,
if only because it's an easy change.
