Default Best Volume Control Option for Gainclone

Is the best sounding option just to go with a NOBLE 100K for 20 bucks? (Michael Percy Audio)

Or would it be better to set up a circuit using a high qualtiy opamp?

While I am at it, what types of resistors should I order for some nice smooth detailed sound. I will be using this with soft dome tweeters for the next few years. I know that metal domes sometimes accentuate the harshness of certain resistors.

Thanks Guys!!

IMHO that would be even better than Noble: 4 deck switching attenuators

I'm using Rikken resistors and they sound fine.
