    Default Mills MRA12 or Mundorf M-Resist Supreme?

    i must upgrade my crossover filter.
    the caps i'll use are ClarityCap CMR, but i have doubt on the sound of the following resistors:

    - mills MRA12
    - mundorf m-resist supreme

    thank you for your answer
    bye

    Both are pretty much the same i.e. they both employ a bifilar winding structure, so have inductance-cancelling effects. Personally I would go for the Mills because they are true mil-spec resistors, lack the marketing babble, and are a bit cheaper - also seem to use more copper.

    thank you for your reply
    do you compare them ?, what are sound differences ?

    when you say that mills use more copper what do you mean ?
    thank you

    Oops, did some research, both use copper construction, both are non-magnetic, both use bifilar winding. I've used Mills before & had no issues, for the price, you could compare both, but looking at how similar they are I highly doubt you'll be able to hear any difference between them at all. That the Mills are mil-spec means they have been objectively tested in extremely demanding environments.

    Mills are more than Fine . IMO already Overkill for purpose resistors.
    I have them.. although in All honesty they made Zero audible difference over the oem Tannoy resistors.

    A while back I went and listened.. to an aquaintance that gleefully replaced all the resistors in his HPD crossovers with Duelunds.
    Had to, as he wouldn't shut up about how good they were.
    They weren't sounding great at all.. then noticed the effing fool had bungled the rewire of his crossovers... so much for the improved sounds .
    Belief supplants logic.. most every time.
    IMO at least: Fair chunk of change pointlessly applied.
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    hey guys, about your point of view do resistors need breakin period or no ?

    No, they don't.

    In fact it seemed strange to me.

    O.T.
    and for caps ?

    I agree. For a resistor to 'break in' would suggest a change of state. Not something you'd want in a resistor.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
