I'd like to agree with raj1s basic description of the tantalum resistor sound. My experience is with the old shinkohs purchased circa 2000. Metal films have a more etched sound and detailing but to varying degrees are clinical and unnatural compared to the tants. The effect of tants if you closely analyze the actual sound is softening of the sound in some ways, less sparkle, but more natural and emotive and yes a similar effect to 2nd order harmonics. They are the best I have heard as input signal path resistors. They dont sound good everywhere else. I am curious about the new audionote non-magnetic tants though has anyone any experience with those?
