No no. They're not "cheap" at all. They're a perfect example of what better deserves to be called "inexpensive."

And $79 for single. Don't forget, there are some who like two knobs to play with.

Well, this is a far better practice than allowing people to continuosly pre-order without actually knowing when (worse, if) they can ship. Hopefully they don't also over-estimate long-term demand and go bankrupt from excess inventory, as it really looks like to be a really nice product.

Thanks.



It would install using standoffs, rather like the Shallco and Seiden open frame switches, or the TKD stepped attenuators.

Basically four male/female standoffs would screw into the female threads on the front piece of the attenuator, and the attenuator would be mounted to the panel with four screws.

So I gotta drill additional 4 holes on my WA6SE if I am getting on of this..

Hmm I am thinking of making myself a passive volume control for my RWA 30.2 sig integrated. But I am new to DIY, how would I connect the cables from the input rca´s? It only have those small "legs" do I simply solder the wire on them? I am thinking of using Kimber TCSS 19awg.
Btw whats with those four outputs and only 2 inputs?

That, or, you could make yourself an adapter using a panel bushing that would allow you to mount it like any other pot or rotary switch with a 3/8" bushing.

You're welcome.

Keystone Electronics' 1705 panel bearing (Mouser part number 534-1705) would be the place to start.

They updated their site: "Online ordering available in 2 weeks."

Just send them an email. That's a gorgeous pot and I'd love to drop them into my amps.

The price is about right, as well. I'd always been torn between the Chinese ones and Shallco/DACT/Goldpoint.

But for $100, this is a no-brainer. If they're any good, I'll put these in everything.

I can name a few reasons to try it.

1) It may be just as good a quality at almost 1/2 the price
2) It has twice as many steps, making for more granular control.

That's only two. You said "a few." A few is more than two, as just two is "a couple."

Either edit your post to read "a couple" or give me my money's worth!

Think you're wrong there:

few
  /fyu/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [fyoo] Show IPA adjective, -er, -est, noun, pronoun
Use few in a Sentence
–adjective
1. not many but more than one: Few artists live luxuriously.

But if it makes you feel better Coolio:
