The 2 watt Shinkohs made a lovely difference! more realism to instruments, drums, strings, piano ect'  8)

Realised before installing the Shinkohs that I still had brass lumps on the input of my amp also (meant to change them ages ago), so in went some copper CMC sockets before the Shinkohs were installed and they made a nice difference and let me hear more of everything, should have done it ages ago like I was going to....bloody brass!

The Miflex are in as bypasses over already run in Andyn Copper Foils in the CD-60. only around 15 hours on them but from the get go they removed the harshness from the character of the Andyn's, not that they were bad, just taken a step forward in a few ways having the Miflex in there. I'll wait for around 50+ hours before maybe other observations.

Edit: Not really able to speak on differences with the Miflex really, It's a different player than previously, I'd also need to be using a single cap same value of each to make a proper evaluation. Have also changed some resistors in my amp.

That's a nice trick Steve  8)

I think they will be alright in this use, will see soon enough  :D

Need some help Steve, do you know the voltage rating for the 2watt Shinkohs?

I can't find that spec anywhere on the net.
I do not think they take as much current as the earlier audionote variant because they are non magnetic. When i run a resistor because it sounds great and is to small for the job voltage wise, i use a heat sink or just the case and heat sink paste so the heat dissipates away. That way i can run a 2 Watt in place of a 5 Watt resistor. And of cause that means i can even run the smaller Shinkohs.

All good, they should be ok.

The Shinkoh 1 Watt is very good, better than any other resistor of any wattage except for the two watt version. I have a 1 watt Shinkoh per channel in one of my amps and i have tried to replace it with a 2 watt alternate make, but they where not even close to the one watt Shinkoh 1 Watt. Its all system dependent as you know.

Cool, found a couple of places I can use available Shinkohs, only 1w ones available though, I guess better than nothing and still will be an improvement, and found AB 36k in Indo'.

Beats me Steve, you would think it not too difficult for someone like AN.

I was wondering who now holds the production design rights for Shinkoh resistors, or those production papers.

Looking for some 36K 2w AB's now, having difficulty finding that value in 2w, damn the scarcity of the better resistors.
