Default Wire Wound Pontentiometers - resistors

Hi I need your comments on this page, providing a good explanation of why wire wound resistors and pontentiometers are better for audio applications.

High thermal dissipation available.
More tolerant of voltage on the wiper.
Lower noise.

For parts over ~10K ohms inductance not a factor @ audio frequency. Also not a problem in triode plate loads.

Not good choice for grid, plate, cathode stoppers. Here low inductance and short leads are critical.
