The attenuator is the A5 stereo, 35 stepper from Glassware Audio, I have mine configured with -1dB and -6dB fine and coarse adjustments -2dB and -12dB is also available.
They can supply resistors but I opted to source some Vishay Dale RN55 low noise, mil spec resistors from Mouser for the Sex's attenuator. Its a nice bit of kit and the fine adjustment really is nice to have after the Valab but it does take up a fair bit of real estate at the front of the amp. It was a tight squeeze in the Sex the headphone socket needed relocating outward a further 10mm to get it to fit and the overlay now covers the original hole.
