> Think twice about those Vishay metal film resistors...  they have known stability problems (particularly concerning humidity).  Also they can have problems meeting their own specs.  There is an active thread of eevblog.com concerning the issue.   Consensus seems to be precision wire wound resistors are a better choice.
