Good source for Panasonic EV-J or ALPS RK27?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My millet amp has a wonky pot and I need to get a replacement-- either the Panasonic EV-J or ALPS RK27-- what is the best place to buy? I'm reading all kinds of info about fake Alps post on ebay and I want to make sure I'm getting something decent. 

 

Thanks for any help!

I didn't find a 50k Alps on their site. I tried, though :)

As does AMB: http://www.amb.org/shop/  He usually ships next day.

50K Alps RK27's are the optimum for headphone amps - 100K introduces noise; 10K has issues with many sources because it doesn't offer enough input impedance to ensure full frequency response, etc.

 

However - 50K are special order items from Alps themselves ... and it costs a great deal because they charge you a minimum lot to make a special manufacturing run (several hundred).  That's why AMB and I (and formerly Tangent) are among the only places they can be found.
