Looking to Try a Passive Preamp
According to the DAC manufacturer, there are alternatives to the low output 5977 tubes , and they recommend 6N1P, 6DJ8, ECC88, 6922 and 6H23P which can provide higher output. They considered the 5977 the best sounding, but did not state what equi... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
That is easy, just carefully read each post, and refer to your dictionary for the meaning of the word.   
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
Not at all, if you check back through each post I have not mentioned other manufacturers product name, or personal names,  and I have also avoided,  as best I can,  stating my own. This page being the exception. Think of other manufacturers of pas... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
There is no doubting LDR passives for sound quality are the bargain of the century, surpassing every other device you can name. I am unsure if everyone would put up with one input and not being able to zero volume, particularly knowing that those ... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
Back to the topic, who agrees passives should be able to zero volume and have more than one input.  
Are Preamplifier’s Relevant Today or just a Hinderance with Digital Playback ?
You just need to match what is called  consumer line level which is nominal 310mv RMS to your power amp sensitivity. Whilst CD players boast 2v figures this does not occur, as all the media you can find will be 310mv RMS, so your power amp needs t...

±0.1VDC 1mVDC ripple is hardly anything to sneeze at.Thyristors make gawdawful noise when switching. Pointless to control current in a device using a few mA.No thyristors are ideal in this circuit as they exhibit much better complete switching.  A... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
  I am happy to ignore that reason, as  it has absolutely no relevance at all, relating to what customers want from passive attenuators. We each know LDR passives offer so much better audio than other attenuation methods, and the task ahead is to...

What about using those keyboard fingers instead, to design your product so that it can have more than one input, and can have silence at zero volume, ... a far better use of your time I should think.  
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
High quality DC supplies are 10 a penny today. Look inside the plugpack  , it explains why they are 10 a penny. "A thyristor is a semiconductor device which can be used to switch current on and off. When used in rectifier circuits, thyristors al...

Why an A/C supply when a DC wallwart would keep all hum outtadabox?Because you then avoid the cheap rectification components inside wall warts, all avoided by using a AC 12v supply.  Rectification can then be achieved with thyristors, and jfets ht...

How’s that for a outright lie!! How does he live with himself? Chris! you are certifiable.If you choose to spell my name wrongly, I have no obligation to agree to that mistake, I would expect you to do the same, not acknowledge your name being s... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
Please stick to the subject, rather than further libel,   the subject is Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ? I am not sure how many people would like those features, but its worth asking in case someone ... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
No.Every contact, additional component and wire/trace affects the sound. Anything below -20dB is pointless with properly configured gain structure.Is it HiFi or sonic wallpaper?If it is contact less already on the signal path then you can have a... 
Are there passive attenuators that don't zero volume and only offer one input ?
@dbxrecords ....why not just disclose or post under your industry affiliation?If this thread is anything to go by, it is obvious a code of ethos is desperately needed.  Until then,  sorry but few would submit themselves to such abuse.  Let alone g...
