Default PRP resistors are magnetic-please advise

Hi
I used to like the PRP resistors, before they were non magnetic.
Now I read all 1/2W resistors are magnetic, magnetic.
Parts connexion say the quality remain the same, somehow hard to believe that.
Do someone had the chance to compare the older non magnetic and the fresh product.
I used to like them a lot (I preferred over the metal film Takman and Dale type)
Now I don't know what to order, even the cheap 10-15 Cent Chinese 1% resistors aren't magnetic.
I do not understand if something good and works well, people like to use them why they need to change or degrade the quality and still sell it for the same price.
At least I think magnetic materials not the best solution for resistors (audio purpus)
Greetings

They may have had problems with the terminations, and had to change over to a different process.

Their site says non magnetic, just came from there on 1/4 thru 1 watt?
You have inside information?

Also, most commercial resistor users don't require a non-magnetic resistor, aside from those making magnetic resonance imaging equipment. :-)

These are designed for, and marketed to, audiophiles.

I don't see anywhere on that page where it says they are magnetic - it all says non-magnetic.

Guys take a look under each value.
At least at half watt.
Please click on the link and roll it done and read under each value.
