KIWAME CARBON FILM RESISTORS

The secure code is incorrect. But one other thing: I thought the main reason people used metal film was because of the price and the low tolerance at said price. Do you already have an account? Jun 9, at 9: Post 6 of 8. For what they cost, however, they’re pretty good. Considerably lower thermal noise levels, lower than metal film resistors!

Carbon Film vs Metal Film revisited. I recently built two versions of the same circuit one with carbon film Kiwame resistors, the other with a combination of PRP and Holco metal films. I matched them, they were within 0. As a side note and an opportunity to say something nice about a manufacturer, a couple of years ago — long after the warranty had ended — the rubber rings around the cones started to deteriorate. For what they cost, however, they’re pretty good. Share This Page Tweet. I also agree that carbon resistors might not be very tolerable for headphone amps because of the noise.

Headphone Reviews and Discussion – Head-Fi. Components Resistors Kiwame Kiwame. Japanese Kiwame resistors using carbon film technology are endowed with high-flying characteristics and perfect in audio use.

Rseistors also agree that carbon resistors might not be very tolerable for headphone amps because of the noise. Also, not being matrix construction they lack a bit of bass punch.

Since their first introduction in the audio industry they have managed to gain reputation and the respect of both manufacturers and worldwide diy-ers.
