A two-knob design would be good for both two channel level controls as well as stereo level w/ input select. It only leaves the issue open of what the user would do who wants a single stereo level control, but no input select.

Yes, Bricolo put much thought into that design. I like it too, but I would tend to simplify it even more. Transformer would definitely be in front and center and two knobs altogether; either double volumes or volume and source selector. This could be actually optional and everybody could have a choice here. Rear panel would also accomodate that choice and could have more or less input RCAs.

EDIT: I see that while I was writing, that suggestion already came up.

I would love to see a chassis with a single volume control on it, preferably the stereo stepped attenuator that you sold me earlier. I really do not like the hassle of having 2 volume control knobs. I did this on my first amplifier for a couple of months, and I really got sick of it, and after swapping to a stereo black beauty, I kicked myself for not changing it sooner.

I agree, not to mention I like to see everything visually balanced, and if I only use one imput, and a stereo control, it would be off to me.

I am interested, depending on price of course. As for issues of inputs and knobs, I think it would be best to leave that as an option. I would be happy with either no volume control, or a stereo pot/attenuator, but would not like 2 individual pots.

I find making a proper chassis alway's the hardest part.... Usually end up with buy something anyway. Mounting the parts inside a chassis is enough DIY for me.

The chassis comes in parts. It will be diy, Ikea style

It is also about finishing a project. There's no more excuses anymore
