edit: btw thanks for all the feedback, keep it coming, somewhere there must exist affordable resistor kits for poor diy'ers.
I am aware of all the scam and fraud junk coming mainly from China, I wonder why there's so little stuff coming from Taiwan, at least I barely see any Taiwan sellers on eBay.
High values (for my tube amp work) within %1, low values %5 and consistant (grabbed 4 15R resistors and they were all 14.7R but when they're 10/$0.01 you can hand match them. The power ratings are different though. a 2W resistor will handle 2W but it will turn brown and outgas in the process. The 1/2W resistors seem more consistant. If the schematic calls for 2W use 3W or 5W.

Just pay attention. Some of the blue resistors that are usually metal film are actually %1 carbon... If it doesn't specify it's not MF.

Thanks kodabmx, and good you mentioned the power rating, I already suspected it's probably better go double the power rating one is aiming for.
I didn't fully get about the tolerances, did you say the advertised 1% of low Ohm values were 5%?

I just took some measurements.

They were all within 1% spec. The lowest value I have is 1R. Below this I wouldn't trust tolerance ratings.

Even 1M was 1.009M

For breadboards and prototyping (from nova, for example):
- Dunnschicht-Widerstand Sortiment SMD 0805 1 % NOVA by Linecard 30 St. kaufen | CONRAD
- Metallschicht-Widerstand Sortiment axial bedrahtet 0.6 W NOVA by Linecard COCCR-70 730 Teile kaufen | CONRAD

Also Pollin offers cheap components, such as capacitors, connectors and others...

For final assembling, follow @Soundhappy´s suggestion.

I am first and foremost looking for 1/4 - 0,6 Watt leaded metal film and preferably non-magnetic, there are lots of assorted resistors on eBay AliExpress etc so I would like to hear with you guys is there any recommended seller/source who have non-magnetic metal films at prices more suitable for a "poor DIY'er"?

Same with SMD if anyone knows, thanks!
If you need passive components for your next DIY project Mouser is interesting option.
Save 50 $ and you have free shipping world wide at that cost.
All parts are genuine high quality.
Vishay Dale resistors RN, CMF metal film low noise are at good price:
CMF5010K000FHEB Vishay / Dale | Mouser France
https://www.mouser.fr/Vishay-Dale/Pa...yy8uqbZ1yzmno7
RN65C2500BB14 Vishay / Dale | Mouser France
Why get tons of low quality resistors ?
My experience from Bay was waste of money : steel magnetic material resistors. Poor quality construction.
Buy only what you need for your DAC, preamp, amp, crossovers etc. resistor cost is not to high
with this logic you can buy capacitors, diodes, transistors at the same time.
SMD resistors go for Susumu brand thin film made in Japan available at Mouser:

JP, You are my mind reader, just the other day I went on Conrad's homepage but couldn't find those kits, maybe a bit of language barrier, thank you!
