Default Riken Ohm Vs Kiwame

Hi all,

1) Like to know is there any sound different between this two types of resistors.

2) Which one do you all prefer!

Thank you!

Cheers,
Frequency

There is a difference. Kiwames are more laid back, Rikens have certain edge. Depending on a circuit, one can be preferred over the other. I tried Kiwames in a GC, but still prefer the Rikens.

Anyway, the sonic signature is quite similar.

At some stage i liked the Kiwames. These days they sound way too laid back and old-fashioned to me. Probably best for upgrading vintage equipment. The Rikens are top grade.

Hi Peter & analog,

Kiwame seen to me all rounder!

Thank You!
