hi
im about to start building the soundlab and in the parts list some resistors require a 5 percent tolerence. is it ok to use ceramic resistors here? they are all i can find with that tolerence. can't find any metal type ones.

thanks

Do you have a Multi-meter that you can use to measure the actual resistance?

The % (1%, 5%, or 10%) just means how accurate the production of those parts was. Your aim is still to get the appropriate value. So just measure what you have, and if it's within 5%, it should be fine to use, regardless of what tolerance it is marked as.
