Resistors at Mouser ...
 
Hi all,

I ve gathered almost all the parts for my BZLS and SOZ, but some resistors are missing. (750 ohm / 3W / 1%)

I can t order it from France since there is a minimum order that s well above the few bucks those resistors are going to cost me.

I was wondering if one of you could buy it and send it to me. I would send the money (paypal or anything else).

Thanks for your help,

Akira

I`m sure a member on the forum can help you out that is closer than me......akira better also state how many you need

akira 13th May 2003 01:15 PM

Right. I d need 20 of them (some spare parts in case I burn one or the other :rolleyes: )

I think a lot of people use 1K5 in parallell for 750 Ohms and that value is available most everywhere. That's what I do...

The fact is that I d like to have a good precision and 1K5 2W at 1% are not that easy to find.

Hi, you can get the 1% 2W 1.5K resistors from maplin electronics in the uk. They cost £0.17 each or if you buy 20 it should only cost about £2.90.

You can find the website here. Tehn if you do a serch for "D1K5" you should get what you need.

Hope this helps some.

P.S. I forgot to mention that these are metal film devices and are quite small for their power rateing

solution!
 
I would like to make a very nice proposal so that you will avoid spending uneccesary money. In my aleph P preamplifier I used 2W carbon film resistors substituting the dale wirewounds and the sound is remarkably better now. Also the simple carbon combosition resistors (sold everywhere extremely cheap) are very easily matched to 1% or better with any multimeter. Just buy 50 or so and get identicals using a multimeter. If power is not enough (as in my case) just use 2 in parallel 2 //1k5 =750 so the wattage will be 4 watts total.
The sound is alot more open and dynamic than the wirewounds that should be avoided in preamplifiers, the same goes for metal films. This is my opinion and its gathered after much critical listening and A-B comparison, and it is of course highly subjective.
Spend your money saved to a bigger transformer and or better capacitors(elna cerafine, Rubycon BG, BHC)

I don't know how good they are, but intertechnik also has a 2 watt 1% metalfilmresistor for €0.72

http://www.intertechnik.de
http://www.intertechnik.de/cgi-local...Watt&&none&&15

The also have a 3 watt, but that costs €5.92, which is nearing "Caddock pricerange".

Duck,

ask for the MOX-4 resistors, they cost around 0,70 Euro/piece

But they only sell low values (until 68 Ohm for 2W). This is not enough ...
