Has anyone tried tx2575 in cathode resistor?
 
hi guys

has any of you guys tried Vishay Z-FOIL RESISTOR TX2575 in cathode resistor position for preamp?

how does it compare with the tantalum resistor?

thanks in advance

Yes, I tried them in the input stage of an ECC82 as a cathode resistor. I like it a lot. It opens up everything , excellent soundstage, wonderful seperation of any instrument and they have beaten any other resitor Ive heard before.
Ive compared them to very good carbons at the cathode, but the difference
was incredible. My cirquit is very `detail giving` ...and the TX2575 help a lot. And you can design the sound by their direction you solder them in. Pay damn attention to the working point of the tube...because they sound v e r y open...Ive changed the value of Rk a n d B+ and now the sound of my preampis amazing.

Or, in other words, old cirquits have to be changed, because till today, resistors have stolen a lot of music until today...

They simply sound less like parts....But you have to try with your ears, if you really want to know. Theyl sell you just 2 resistors, if you want...
