Default VISHAY VTA 55 Bulk Metal Foil Resistors?

Anyone have experience with these resistors enough to compare them to say the naked Texas Components or Caddock MK132?

I would use them in a grid to ground that sets loading on an interstage transformer.

What aspect were you worried about - perhaps the 0.05uV/C thermal contact voltage change?

I compared them against the Caddock in an I/V converter just after my K&K Audio RAKK DAC II. Couldn't hear any difference, including against a WW.

I used a Mills in that position previously to good results. The Caddock is definitely quieter. Sometimes the Caddocks is be a bit dry and my friend claimed the VTA series had better tone.
