Anyone know what the difference between metal film and carbon film resistors are? I've heard that carbon film resistors aren't quite as good as metal film in terms of audio applications, is this true?

Thanks for the tip. I'm ordering it for a Ipod dock so hopefully the size will be ok. My 5.5g is dying so I'll be moving to a Touch 2G and need the resistor to remove the airplane message.

The touch 2G doesn't give the airplane message. there will just be a slight pause before the signal is switched out to the LOD.
I also couldn't find any 68k ohm resistors at 1/8w. If you don't mind, could you PM or post here about where you are getting them? Thanks

Why is that?
