Hi and thanks for reading this post.

I have a few blown one watt resistors i want to replace in my power amp and am thinking about using surface mount resistors.

Do you think this is a wise move switching from through hole to surface mount, has anyone done this and what are your experiences concerning sound quality changes.

Many thanks in advance. John.

Hi. Thanks for the replies.

I've found a few surface mounts on mouser but cannot understand the datasheet, usually when purchasing through hole resistors i look for descriptions such as low noise or military or suitable for audio etc but there is no mention.

Does anyone understand datasheets better than me or has an opinion on the caddock mk 132 series,vishay dralorik crcw-hp, vishay wsc/wsn series.

Are these suitable for audio amps.

Thank you. John.
