Kiwame Carbon Film Resistors are an excellent match for Hi-End Audio. Kiwame resistors are from Japan and characterized by lower noise than metal film resistors and a more natural sound. There is a growing enthusiasm for these carbon film resistors because they recapture the vintage tube sound without the drift of carbon comps. They are also very compact given their wattage rating. The resistance material is carbon film with coated silicon and finished in green.
2w $1@, 4.2x12mm
5w $2@, 9x24mm
Takman Resistors are the resistors that we've been waiting for -- nonmagnetic, music friendly materials, reasonable price. Metal Film is more precise and sounds brighter while carbon film is warmer and more relaxed.
0.25w $0.75@, 2.3x6.3mm
0.5w $1@, 3.5x9mm
1w $2@, 5x14mm

AudioNote Tantalum Resistors are the most expensive because it's very sweet in midrange and good base. Some are grey finished and some are brown.
Cermet wirewound resistors
30w NI series (green) are ideal for cathode resistors also and come with chassis mounting hardware.
10w NI series (green) are excellent as anode resistors also with mouting hardware.
10w series (white) are lower cost for power supply.
30w (NI) $8@ (80mm x 17mm)
10w (NI) $5@ (45mm x 12mm)
