Just wondering about the quality of BF Super Reverb kits over at Torres...any specifics on what brand of filter caps are best? Any other kits out there?

The filter cap kit seems a bit pricey, is it worth the $$? Is the $10 upgarde to the filter cap kit worthwhile?
From the site:
"Select the "Upgrade this kit" option to optimize the filter cap set for improved dynamic response, tighter bottom-end, and improved power."
For the plate load resistors:
"Choose between 1/2 watt carbon composition (vintage correct) or 1 watt carbon film for improved low noise performance"
I want to gig with the amp so go for the 1 watt carbon films?
Also, has anyone made & used one of these bias check sockets?
Worthwhile or just use cathode resistor method?
