It will, i have them but you should have bought the 2W version. They sound even better then the 0.5W

Hmmm...are you sure, have you tried both versions ? Original is 0.5 watt.
And 2w silver tantalum is over dobbel the price, which is already high enough for the 0.5w.

To be honest, no i haven't tried the 0.5W but it was recommended to me by someone who knows his stuff but doesn't sell them.
With a non commercial biased answer i thought i did the right thing then.
Ouch, i see you talk about the silver version.....i have bought the non magnetic Tantalum version

I see. I think that it’s more important that the resistors is non magnetic and conten tantalum and pure silver.

I have been playing with the silver tants last evening, and this is very promising.

Hello Norway,
When i was looking for a resistor to use at that spot i could only found the Shinkoh 2 watt. If i remember well the Audio note resistors available at that time were not the right the value for a 4 deck dddac. The new series have a 2 watt in that value?
I remember buying a few of these two watt resistors for a phonostage that was build by me. It was a pretty hefty invoice for la handful of resistors.
I remember buying the original Shinko 0,5 watt resistors in Paris 3 decades ago for less than 2$. These were considered expensive at the time.
So after finishing my new tiny power amp, going Fifopi, new clocks, lifepo4, supercaps i might try these 2 watts too.
Greetings, Eduard
P.s the attachment is a new copper chassis, 440*440*68 mm ( this is the power supply part including the ultra path caps. The signal part is 440*193*68 and will the attached to the bigger part by means of a wooden frame.

I was told that the 2 watts have their legs fixed in another manner, which highly affects the sound in a very positive way
Im not gonna spend a lot on mediocre tants if a can obtain better sound by spending a hell of a lot....

When talking about I/V resistors. Have anyone of you tried these: General Resistance GG102 Squaristor Series | Rhopoint Components

Chassis looks awesome. Did they laser cut or punch it?

Edit, I can see they punched it.

These were the best resistors I heard but not cheap. Then I upgraded to four boards and cant bring myself to order them again....minimum order quantity is 10 last I checked.
