^ No argument at all with the above, it's correct as I understand it. But what wuwhere was trying to say according to his post was that there is an audible difference in sound quality between cheap and expensive resistor brands (Vishay) in the connector box plugged in to the amp. And there I disagree, or at least, I don't see how they could audibly differ and have never read a technical article saying they do.
I see your point that it's better to add an output resistor of any kind at the output than none if there is issue with noise as the noise amplified from the amp is pretty significant to a sensitive transducer compared to noise produced by the output resistor which should be insignificant in comparison.
