What you are describing is a digital, not analog, audio control mechanism. That is not what we wanted for the HA-1. We wanted a truly analog device from beginning to end, which means using a high precision, motorized analog potentiometer for volume control A potentiometer will have some amount of lag associated to it as you need to take the digital volume controls from the remote control or the HA-1 application for Android/iOS devices, convert this to analog, then move the motor. This is also why the volume control and the readout on the front panel are also not 1:1 as the HA-1 needs to convert the analog volume information to a data plot for display on the VFD. Digital volume controls, which pretty much all AVRs use, do not have this lag since it is digital in; digital out. These volume controls also have no beginning or end, which is why you can rotate the volume knobs indefinitely.
