Whee bit out of the $500 range ;) If it's for the F1J... passive would be hard to do. 10K input means a passive in the 1K range which aren't common.
You could buy fixed attenuators to bring the PWD2 into the 40+ range for pretty cheap.post #1023 of 16601/31/13 at 6:17pmQuote:

^Wow, that's a one-two punch!!! Might be all that you "need". Congrats on those.
I've been really loving my rig and having to force myself to go to sleep since I got the PWDII in and swapped the caps out in my Super 7.

Direct from PS Audio. It's $1000 off with free bridge but you got to trade in a DAC of any make/model/value.
