    I'm making a shopping list for components, one of them is the 2.2M resistor to make a fixed bias mod to my 5E3 amp. Anyone knows if it should be a 1/2W or will 1/4 W suffice? Some online stores only sell the 1/4W, and I want to put everything in one order.

    1/2 watt for sure. 5E3 schematic has a footnote at the bottom stating all resistors are 1/2 watt unless otherwise noted. Some are more than 1/2 watt, none are less.
