Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: I would not use wire-wound resistors in grid stopper positions

CF will do nicely. Buy KOA/Speer parts from Mouser, of an appropriate wattage rating. Remember, Kiwame "audiophile grade" resistors are, in fact, KOA/Speer.

Frankly, the fascination with "boutique" parts eludes me. Yes, there are hyper-critical situations where noise factor, low ESR, non-inductive ... matter and a costly part makes sense. Otherwise, good grade (not "bargain basement"), industrial parts yield eminently satisfactory results. Every last one of us is highly vulnerable to the "Emperor's New Clothes Virus". :>((
