Default Are these resistors good, or should I...?

Dear mates, I'm looking forward to collecting all the components for my First Watt F4 build. At this moment, I think I've found pretty much everything (and even more than the strictly needed... Thank you Jacco ), but I have some doubts about the resistors.

This is what I found, at a very affordable .22€ each, the Vishay/Beyschlag 0.1% 0.6W SMA 0207 type:

Some people told me that they could be not so good, due to the metal-based composition and the very strict tolerance (saying that most of the less precise parts do actually sound better), and recommended me to look for other types of resistors, regardless of tolerance (such as carbon). Well, what do you think about it? Keep in mind that I have some serious budget issues, and I'd hate to spend more than .30€ per resistor.

If these ones can be considered good, I'll stick on them with no further hesitation.

Thank you very much.

I wouldn't have any doubts about those. 0.1% implies good stability, low noise and low temperature coefficient. 0.6W rating gives plenty of head-room and minimizes temperature rise in most audio applications where <0.25W is called for.

Hahaha Jacco

Thank you both, I'll stick with these nice Vishay's. Just bought some Elna Cerafine as 220uF caps, and Kendeil K-05 for the power supply. I think that I'm playing with good stuff... After some burn-in, I'll try dear Jacco's gift, the polystirene caps in parallel with C1 and C2... And surely report the benefits.
