Thanks for the abundance of replies !!

Since the consensus seems to be that the difference will be minimal or non-existant I'll stick with the trusty HG-10s

Man, I think you just posted the answer to something that has been puzzling me for a while in a test amp I have!

Now to the bench to swap a couple resistors and put it on the scope!


Edit: I can't hear the difference but I can see it.

Yup, pretty much what I found too. They all sounded the same to me, but the 'scope saw a difference.

I ended up using metal composition in my designs simply because they were the smallest for the 3 watt rating that sufficed.
