All members who want to use the "holy grail" audio resistor,

the TX2575 Naked Z-Foil,

could order it direct at Texas Components.

Thatīs the cheapest way to get it IMO.

They have also great Trimpots with Bulk Metal Foil Technologie.

P.S.: If you send a mail to Arbie, send her regards from me!

    yep, been using the pots for over a year now, great stuff, but the land patterns are not always that useful as are a little unusual, i keep on bugging thev about doing a zfoil pot, but i assume there is something that makes this difficult or they would have done it already.

    Texas Components

    Yes, I agree, the worldīs best adress to get some of these audio resistors is at Texas Components in Huston, Texas. Since Arbie has left the company, ask for Elida for details of resistors or Janet for shipping questions. Both are really nice contacts and they do a good Job.
    And last time, I got some of these trimming pots, a pair of 1202Y. On my first impression they c a n be used in audio cirquits. They sound better than many other resistors and come close to the TX2575. I think , there is a tiny difference, but itīs not big. But beware of the soldering direction: it does matter.
    I havenīt heard better trims yet.
