It's marine quality adhesive vinyl, fuel and water resistant, 5 year outdoor lifespan, indoor use should should be long lasting.

Kerning looks pretty good.....

FYI, HDMan, I think you mentioned a while back that you were having "clicking" issues with your Khozmo pot. I did as well. It eventually got worse and worse to the point that I pulled the pot out of the amp yesterday to send back to Khozmo for service or replacement.

 

Keep an eye (or in this case, ear) on yours. If it starts getting worse, you might have to replace it as well.

Mine did not work at all. I emailed Khozmo but have not heard from them.

Well I was starting to gain hope that Khozmo was a possible choice for an attenuator, but I think I'll go for other options :)

Yeh it seems to be popping/crackling between steps more and more, me thinks not a good quality build, but nice sound none the less.

It does sound like the same problem I was having. Is it on one channel or both? Mine was only screwed up on one side.

If anyone's wondering, after letting my onboard version (@~460V) run for about four days straight, the heatsinks on the output devices measure about ~35C above ambient.

 

If I remember correctly, the offset drifted something like 30V-40V or so with the ixys current sources, settling down rather quickly in five or ten minutes.

 

How's it sound? Alright with my modded 007a's. tongue.gif

Both channels for me, popping in each step as you turn the knob.

I have the 500v onboard version with the IXYS current sources and when i first start the KGSSHV, the offset voltages are +30-35v, then settling to almost zero after 30-60 minutes (from the output's O- O+), i think the balance voltages are not so different between cold and hot, maybe like 10-15v.

I’m heading for a Khozmo replacement as well, clicking, distortion and leakage all of which is getting progressively worse.

Actually... I think I’ll even ask for my coin back and just stick with a reliable DACT.

 

Pissed to say the least...

Let us know how it goes with a refund, I am seriously considering it myself. I guess we will have to pay for return postage eh!!!

post #238 of 437

What alternative attenuators, besides the already mentioned DACT, can we go for at Khozmo's "level"?

shallco...

 

pure silver things, and kind of pricey.

Goldpoint? Based in California. Has anybody used the Mini V?
I opened a dispute in Paypal and Khozmo as not answered yet.
