    Default Duelund cast resistors for 2B,

    Where should I purchase these from, are they international only or are there stateside dealers? I have the itch to swap out the .5 mills and compare, pricey comparison but would like to see how they respond.

    Are you only switching out the .5 ohm Mills? You should do all the resistors from Mills to Duelund Cast if you are going to do it. You *may* notice a slight difference by switching only one resistor as that has less of an effect on the sound output, but you will definately notice a difference if you change all the resistors to Duelund Cast. I would do all of them, or none at all IMO as that's the only way to truely compare.

    I'm with Greg, replace them all or none.. I love Duelund but they are pricey, be happy your not doing the SRS 1.2tl's..

    I ordered mine direct from Duelund with extra long leads..

    I forgot about the 2.7, what I may try first is to change the .5 to a .27, .22, or maybe a .12-.15. They're cheap enough to at least try. They seem to need just a slight kick in the treble, they're not bad but I want to see if I can open some detail without them being too bright.

    I suppose I could use a .3 in place of the 2.7 then a jumper where the .5 goes to reduce the amount of components in the path. This was discussed when I first completed the mod but now I think I need to try.

    I did measure each speaker at about 1 meter away with REW. While the response looks good, I don't think it shows that there is a slight lack of detail in the upper end.

    I've had great results with the Duelands. I'm sure you'll be happy. Just to warn you, there is a fairly long lead time after you order. It takes several weeks for them to arrive.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    So the plan is to try a few different Mills first, from .15-.33. I also have a 3 ohm that I will try in place of the 2.7 & .5 despite being a lower value...didn't want to use the 3.3 since it's padded enough.

    The Duelund's are just to pricey to experiment with.
