I've moved away from pots, I like to use some kind of digital system with IR remote and buttons for up and down. Either digipots or relay switched attenuators. You can have numerical readout or bargraph style.

Broadly speaking, sliders are more susceptible to noise due to dirt impregnation's harder to "seal' a slot than a hole. Quality sliders are available, but cost more than rotaries. They cost more to implement also, since a hole is much easier to do in a panel than a rectangular space. If you have an operational need for sliders, (ie need for real-time adjustment with a lot of points where a visual representation of your settings is important) then use them, but if no specific need, I'd say use rotaries.

Hi Inverseopamp,
Could you share the source for bourns pots? Rs.950 is not too bad if they are good quality. Have you used them?what are your thoughts on SQ and dust sealing...
