Capacitors for audio

Class 2 ceramic capacitors might be problematic[1].  I've ran into
this before.  (re-googling: [2]). 

So what kind would be good?

Dave mentions in [1] that "class 1" capacitors (only low-value
e.g. <1nF) are quite good.  NPO, COG.

Also, ceramics are microphonic, so probably not good in the signal
path.

Mylar (polyester film)?

Metal film?  Same thing?

Hmm... not a simple thing apparently.
