The problem as I see it is the RK50 and it's associated cost.
Inside a $6K BHSE yes, even a $3K GSX MK2 yes - inside a $1800 GSX Mini? Not when the pot is almost half the cost of the entire amplifier.
I personally will get the DAC-T on my GSX mini. The RK50 was just a joke but if you truly want one...Justin can do it if you are willing to pay.

Sounds like I'm beating a dead horse :deadhorse:

But....

I still want to know if the RK27 pot is musical with the GSX MINI?

The one I heard was the DAC-T and it was already musical.

I would be willing to bet that if any of yall listened to a mini with one volume control and then immediately listened to a mini with the other that from SQ alone, no one could tell the difference.
Just sayin'...

I doubt that there is enough space for the 50 in a GSX chassis. But don't let me stop you.
You can always get the regular Mini, go with the DIY route to customize it with a new chassis design that fits your choice of musical potentiometer, and also add an ivory volume knob to pimp out the supposed to be practical amplifier.
YOLO right..?

Yup...the RK50 won’t fit in there due to height restriction.

I’ve had single ended amps that accept rca or xlr and output the same power to 4 pin balances or 1/4 inch. Will you received the power on the mini through either HP output or will you only get the full power via 4 pin? I need the power but will have to factor in the cost of swapping out the HP cables I’m currently using.

Yes the first batch of them are out for delivery or already delivered all this week! More will be coming, we were still waiting on silver panels (just arrived) as well as some other colors and more circuit boards. All pre-orders including the most recent one should be shipped this month.
