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.

I have the same experience with designing layouts plus dealing with manufacturing PLUS servicing/reworking populated boards. It is this last point that pdq is addressing. This is not about the integrity of vias and plated through-holes; it is about what becomes of them after less-than-delicate work has been performed.
