RE: "bundle" of resistors?

Cool, I get what you're trying to accomplish and I'll agree with your mix and match method. It's a very good practice that applies to all audio electronics be it source components, amplifiers, speakers etc.

Having said that, I'll go one step further and suggest that you parallel two different types of resistors in your bundle scheme and use, say half Vishay CMF's and half carbon films or carbon comp's. Kiwame, Arcol and Takman come to mind not to mention the old favorites such as NOS Allen Bradley, Stackpole etc.

I think that that should take away some of the dryness and give you perhaps a bit more 'meat on the bones' kind of sound or sweeter if you will, while the metal film resistors should allow the extended highs to come through.

Hmm... the more I think about it the more I like the idea.
