What happened to them?

I've had good luck with the Panasonic TS series from Digi-key. I have used them on two different projects and I have been very happy with them. Here is a link. I usually get the ones with the lowest ESR.
Mechans they stop production a couple of years ago I believe. Not a big enough market.
I have used a variety of caps with audio projects for several years, and while I can say that there are differences I will also say that the differences are largely overblown, over-hyped or just plain inaccurate IMHO.
Having said that, I will also go out on a limb and say that ANY modern cap (modern design) is better than the best capacitor that was available 20 years ago. I'm talking new to new here. The changes to cap technology have been to provide universally beter product at universally lower prices than was possible in 1990, for example.
So by all means buy good caps, but you don't need to over do it. As always, YMMV.
