They have less sound than most 5 watt resistors. The cost is very fair.
I have started using a nice Dale resistor where the Mills was used before. But I do not think the Dale is really any better, just available locally for a 1.00 each. and in the sub 1 ohm values deisired.

I use them on my outputs. They are good but not cheap. They are very small for the wattage too.

They sound excellent. I use them as the output and source resistors in my Aleph 5.

They are in my Aleph 4s together with HOLCO non-magnetic
and they sound so transparent and neutral and IMHO they
are excellent choice.

Just my 2C.
