    Default What happened to Shinkoh resistors ?

    It seems funny the best electrolytic s are now AN Kaisei ,

    and now the best resistors are AN Tantulam S. but I will not pay $47.05 for a single 2 watt resistor.
    Dose anyone know what happened to Shinkoh Tantulam resistors ?

    I went with Vishay Z foil 0.6 watt at no more than $17.95 each most at $15.95 they are said to be better in key places.
    I was looking at the Tantulams for cathode resisters for ECC83 tubes in my DAC .

    Kiwame resisters get a lot of love to but they are really inexpensive.

    Any tube guys have advice? I am all ears since in the U.S. it seems Shinkoh is unavailable in the values I need.

    Thanks, I am pretty new to modding a tube DAC.

    Get ordinary metal foil/film resistors for pennies and move from there. Emperor's new clothes and that.

    I bought 4 of them but wanted Shinkoh too...

    Hi-Fi Collective had some stock left. But not in the value I needed.
