I need 4.64K SMD resistors for the circuit that controls input sensitivity of the left and right input channels of an AD converter unit. I guess these resistors must be high precision (1% tolerance or lower) in order for the left and right input channels to match very closely in level. What brands/series would you recommend? Also what type (metal film, thin film or thick film) is best?
I remember Vishay-Dale CMF or RN series were highly recommended for through hole. What do you think of soldering a small enough CMF resistor on the SMD pads instead of using an SMD one? Any drawbacks if I do this? How does the quality of through hole resistors compare to SMD?
Any inputs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
