The pots on all the CA amps are audio (log) taper. I think this would be true on almost any amp I know about. I am surprised to hear of an amp that was using a linear pot unless it was in an atypical configuration.
The real issue is that the sources are very hot and the headphones (for the most part) are very sensitive. I wrote a long scree about this on another forum.
