The Taboo II amp has two pairs of inputs. The outer pair connect to the input on the volume pot. The inner pair connects to the output of
the pot. That pair is to be used with a preamp, like the CSP. A 1KR resistor connects from the pot out to the input tube pin. It is supposed
to bypass the volume pot, but I still have to turn the pot up to work with my CSP.
This may be a clue as to what is going on. The pot is 100K. If I measure from L-out to R-out, I get a reading of 200KR.
So, bottom line is, my direct inputs aren't so direct. Any thoughts?
