Bulk metal foil resistors, foil manufactured by Vishay, packaged by Wilbrecht.

Technology can be the same but if his voice to the character of the same?
But Vishay for me too smooth and polite .... less bright.

Resistors ought not to have any 'character' of their own; neutral and transparent seem to me very desirable characteristics. Affordability would be great, too; foil resistors are very expensive.

If you have tried vishay TX2575, for me this resistor not "too smooth" but neutral and full of detail also add some more deep bass

recently today I replaced Takman metal film from my 300B tube amp with TKD correctohm CM series, the result is more cleaner high and bit lower noise floor
