One of the few remaining local parts retailers just switched resistor brands
after many years. The new ones are visibly crap
(but apparently they 'sound cleaner' to the audioph**les who are some
significant portion of his market).

Just one retailer, or is this is the next step towards death of 'conventional'
home-brew electronics and repairs? With the market for wire-lead components
having been so reduced by SMD, what market remains is filled by low-quality manufacturers.
