Or if you can cut the wires one at a time from the old pot and solder it to the corresponding lugs onto the new pot.

The OE wires are ridiculously small and fragile...I would replace them with a new wiring harness.  Since it uses a 5 wire JST 4S harness, just make sure you assign a color from the new harness to a color from the old harness in the same order/position.

 

I bought this  one...22AWG, reasonable quality: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JST-XH-4S-14-8v-Lipo-Balance-Wire-Extension-Lead-8-5-inches-/260972483935

 

It appears to be sold out, but here is another, which appears to be the same:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-JST-JST-XH-4S-Balance-Wire-Extension-20cm-Adapter-14-8v-Lipo-Battery-Charge-/131155665680?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e897ca310

If you decide to used the ALPS BLUE VELVET then you have a lot of work ahead of you and you need 100K pot.

Last weekend got myself an amp that would incorporate at least 2 types of tubes i wanted to have in an amp 6AS7 and  6SN7 types so since getting the Elise was to expensive because of currency and customs bought an amp here instead that incorporates all i was looking for and more at a very good price  a Woo Audio 22 yes another Woo i guess i like those amps lol.                                                                                                                                                 CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95

I think I'll eventually machine a front face extension/box for a ALPS Blue Velvet.  I'm thinking that it will have a circular lip that will interface with the LD faceplate and be held by set screw throughout the retention hole...then the main body will be a square to accommodate the ALPS, with separate faceplate to match the shaft and retention spot.

 

What's the best place/best price t pick a Blue Velvet up at???

You are now going to have to get yourself a set of balanced cables and a balanced DAC to go with it...

 

The Q French Silk cable is very nice and you will need the matching HD800 adapter.

 

Also:

Don't say BALANCED too loud or we will have @Mshenay in the thread extolling the virtues of a balanced system... :D

Received a pair of Lorenz CG3 today. Up until MrX's recent posting showing a picture of a Lorenz and Siemens C3g, I had believed that all C3g were manufactured by Siemens regardless of the label. However, that picture certainly changed my mind. lol :)

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/563884/little-dot-tube-amps-vacuum-tube-rolling-guide/9180#post_11350547

 

So when I saw Superdux's recent post about some cheap Lorenz C3g (Auction Nr.261797955911) I grabbed a pair. Even though they are still in their cans, their physical appearance certainly suggests that these were not manufactured by Siemens. The Lorenz sound great, but I haven't had them long enough to burn them in, much less compare them to the Siemens.

So Lorenz also makes c3g's with gold pins. Didn't know that. Not that it makes a huge difference, lol.
