Audio Note Tantalum
*** Price for ONE resistor
Audio Note Tantalum
These exotic resistors from Japan, sound less dry than the metal films and they do not emphasize any particular frequency range. They sound more natural, more musical.
They work equally well in semiconductor and tube amplifiers. Most customers, who have tried the tantalums, say that they would never go back to the common metalfilm type resistors. Please note that the Audio Note tantalums are not actually Shinkoh manufactured (no longer in business) but are from a second source, these, however share many aspects of the original Shinkoh`s. These have a 1% tolerance.
Amtrans AMRG Carbon Film Resistors 2W & 3/4W
Amtrans AMRG Carbon Film Resistors 2W & 3/4W
Since the demise of the beloved Riken Ohm carbon film resistors back in 2005/6, with their destinctive blue body, colour code bands and gold plated copper leadouts there hasn`t been a serious contendor to rival them. Until now...
Amtrans, from Japan, used to be the distributor for Riken resistors. In 2005 they bought a resistor factory, whether this was the original Riken premises they wouldn`t confirm. Soon came the AMRG carbon film resistor, which they claim is better than the Riken as they have employed cutting edge technologies for production. Indeed they aren`t far from the truth they are truely amazing.
They are available in 0.75 watt and 2 watt, from 10R to 1.5M in E24 values. we are now stocking the E12 range but will increase the range to E24 in 2011. They have a 1% tolerance, non-magnetic , they are encapsulated in a black anodized aluminum case, potted in a highly thermal conductive resin, gold-plated copper end caps and gold-plated oxygen free copper leadouts. A lot to boast we believe and at an incredible price.
Amtrans AMRT 2W 5% carbon film: The world first batch of AMRT 2W resistrors
Amtrans AMRA Metal Oxide Resistors 5W
In response to our customer demands, we has finally been able to source a range of premium "audio-grade" 2-Watt and 5-watt metal oxide resistors. These Japanese-made parts, are robustly made, conservatively designed, 2% tolerance, featuring non-magnetic construction, and RoHS compliant, solder-coated OFHC copper leads. They offer audio constructors an economical, "no worry" alternative, for both power supply and more cost conscious audio applications.
0R22, 0R47, 0R68, 10R, 47R, 100R, 270R, 470R, 1K, 1K2, 1K5, 2K2, 4K7, 6K8, 8K2, 10K, 12K, 15K, 22K, 27K, 33K, 47K, 68K, 82K, 100K
Duelund CAST Silver Resistors
DUELUND CAST Silver 10W: 0R5, 1R, 1R5, 2R2, 3R3, 3R9, 4R7, 6R8, 10R, 15R, 20R, 30R, 33R
New from DUELUND, a step up from their standard resistors are their amazing CAST resistors. Constructed from a graphite rod with silver terminals in a phenolic cylinder for protection, using a high temperature epoxy, both as a cavity-fill within the cylinder, and to encapsulate the graphite element. This gives each part incredible mechanical stability, and incredible damping properties. They have practically zero inductance, with a 5% tolerance.The special charcteristic about this resistor is that it displays a negative temperature coefficient. For example, when the voice coil of a speaker heats up, it's impedance rises. The DUELUND Graphite Resistor counteracts this by means of a decreasing impedance. The results are greatly improved dynamics from the driver.
Diameter = 8mm, length = 65mm to 135mm.
MResist Supreme non-inductive 20W resistors
Mundorf M-Resist Supreme 20 W
With our MResist SUPREME you can enjoy even finest details and spatial information which normally get lost. Due to the complex bifilar structure from 1 ohm with two wires being wound around the high-temperature-resistant cement element simultaneously the inductance is always below 75uH.
In addition, the MResist SUPREME series features acoustic neutrality and music reproduction close to reality. This is due to a special manually applied fire-resistant casting compound which optimally fixes and stabilises the resistor winding thus protecting it against microphony effects.
In order to maintain high sound quality even at high load, we apply a special copper-nickel alloy as conducting material featuring a positive and extremely low temperature coefficient of only 50ppm/ C. Rated at 20 watts.
Further details which guarantee that MResist SUPREME resistors are hardly noticeable any-more are the of use non-magnetic materials and welded contacts.
TKD Metal Film Resistors 2W & 1W
Non-Magnetic, OFHC copper lead, for Audio resistors
TKD 2W Metal Film Resistor
Fresh from Japan we have large stocks of TKDs Correctohm CM2 series 2 Watt metal film resistors. You will all know TKD from their range of potentiometers, switches and attenuators. They also make high quality resistors.
We have initially focused on their 2W range, as there is a shortage of reasonable cost resistors of this power rating. We stock the full E24 values from 10R to 1.5M. They are a robust design, with a 1% tolerance, feature non-magnetic construction, RoHS compliant and solder-coated OFHC copper leads. Sonically they are very neutral with great clarity.
Takman Carbon Films
This is just what the DIY community has been waiting for. TAKMAN, Japan, have developed a truly supreme carbon film resistor, specifically developed for Audio. we are proud to be the stockist of the full E-24 range of both the 0.25W and 0.5W, plus the full E12 range of the 1W resistors.
TAKMAN resistors are already extremely popular in manufactured hi-fi, their notoriety excelerated by their amazing natural tonality and clean detailing.
During development, TAKMAN recognised how sound is influenced by the various structures and materials used in manufacture. Magnetism, inductance, electrification caused by contact resistance and vibration make the sound flat and coloured. Ultimately you will hear an edgy brightness at the highs but overall a lack of accuracy and detail. To remove these incidental noises TAKMAN developed their first audio grade resistor, the MAESTRO, the predecessor to the REX (carbon film) and the REY (metal film). With outstanding specifications, TAKMAN, by making the best of their know-how and sophisticated technology of a resistor-specialized manufacturer have created the best resistor for your audio equipment or circuits seeking for unlimited high-quality sound. So now you can enjoy the great intrinsic characteristics of carbon film resitors - natural and easy to listen to but with greater defined detail and impact. At a great price you will not be disappointed with these amazing gems.
Takman Metal Films
Extending the range of the incredibly popular TAKMAN resistors from Japan, we are proud to be stocking the full E24 range of the REY25, 0.25W, REY50, 0.5W metal film, both at 1% tolerance metal film resistor. We also have the full E12 range of the REY75, 1W resistors. A thoroughly modern manufactured resistor designed specifically for Audio.
Takman REY metal film resistor for audio equipment has the features that it consists of resistor thin film made mainly of Ni-Cr-Al materials, brass caps and non-oxygen copper wire. High-precision is realized with laser trimming and high stability and high sound quality are achieved with most proper coating. This resistor is usable for any audio components.
