Default Least expensive 6-channel volume control for DCX2496?

I'd like to get away from using my dual Panasonic XR-25 receivers as volume/amplification and was wondering the least expensive route to purchase a 6-channel volume control for my DCX2496?

Thanks!

what about just using an amplifier that has individual volume control for each channel, some of the rotel models have this among other brands.

The problem with that is I'd be controlling the volume via the input gain on the DCX2496, which I'd like to avoid.

Hmmm, I'm not real familiar with how that would work. Could you clue me in a little bit?

Thanks!

it's just a 6 gang 20k pot (rare) with a motor to run it 'round if you wanted to somehow give it a remote control... An item like this is hard to find...6 gang!

other than that just search on potentiometer wiring <or> pot wiring <or> attenuator wiring.

A cheap way is to use the Analog Devices SSM2164. You will need two, but it is very easy to implement and the tracking between channels should be good.

A couple of steps up from this is to use 6 x SMM2018T.

Have fun

I just got myself a 6-channel remote vol control from www.altronics.com.au , the K5600. 150 aussi dollars on sale (just over 100 euros). A steal!

Do you guys think I could get away with using a receiver with 6 channel input, then using the 6 channel output from it to my amps? Or do you think that would be too much signal loss/degradation?

Default Stepped attenuators

I use these. If sound quality is the highest priorty, then a good set of stepped attenuators will be hard to beat.
