Resistor types - Does it REALLY matter?
 
If there was ever a thread on this, I missed it. I have seen the articles by the Soldano dude that says resistor types do not matter, he sticks with his metal film 1% jobs. Then there are those who swear by the carbon comp units.  
 
I can appreciate the lower noise, etc. of larger wattage units, which is why I selected 1W carbon film units for my current project (I call it the SuperScreamer).  
 
Anyway, from our own experience, are there noticeable tonal differences with the different types of resistors in the signal path?
