Valab Ladder Type 23-Stepped Attenuator Volume Control  50K Log Curve --- stereo/dual channels

Many audiophiles ask us offer ladder type potentiometer. While we fail to offer it for long years. Ladder type potentiometer "should" be a better design since signals only pass two resistors and have much shorter signal length and soldering points. While in real world implementation. Most ladder type potentiometer fail to bring better sound than well made serial  type potentiometers. Because its much complex structure, double resistors number and 4 times of soldering points make too difficult to realize its design purpose. (cool soldering, over heating damage of resistors....)

What you see here is our solution for real good sound ladder type potentiometer. Its architecture solve major difficulty in resistor alignment and simplify soldering work. So all resistors can be installed and soldered very well, and in consequence, you can get a stable quality and good sound ladder type potentiometer.

Features of this product

1) We choose Japan made KOA 1/4W 1% 25ppm precision resistor to implement resistor network. KOA resistor have very open and natural sound characteristics, 

2) This topology of resistor network solve soldering over-heat problem which will damage resistors which is major quality problem on this type of potentiometer. 

3)User friendly interface;  audio diyers can easily install this potentiometer by soldering wires onto indicated solder point as indication on back end PCB. 

4) We use Senju Lead Free Silver Copper Solder Sn96.5 Ag3 Cu0.5 solder for this potentiometer. This is very good sound solder. 

5) No noise or 'bobbing' during volume switch which may be heard in other type stepped attenuator.

This listing is for 50K logarithmic (audio) type.

Shipping Worldwide:  will ship worldwide by registered air mail. It is cheap, fast  and quite reliable. Shipping fee just need $4usd for first one and add $1usd for every extra one pc.
