These are an excellent match for hi-end Audio. Kiwame resistors are from Japan and characterized by lower noise than metal film resistors and a more natural sound. There is a growing enthusiasm for these carbon film resistors because they recapture the vintage tube sound without the drift of carbon composite. They are also very compact given their wattage rating. The resistance material is carbon film with coated silicon and finished in green.
