Default 6 ch. vol. control for DCX2496

Hi all,

As some may know I have been modifying quite drastically my DCX2496 (see link below) and I came to a point where I realized I badly needed a 6 channel volume control (I'm now using the DCX the "right way", i.e. through digital input)

As market does not offer many "audiophile" solutions I asked a french company if they could invest some time to study such a device, and they came back to me with this :

6 channel volume control

I thought it would be interesting for you DCX2496 owners to know that an alternative solution is now available.

Cheers

Thierry

Nice. Good for people who don't want to use transformer outputs.

Since this unit is designed for the DCX why no XLR inputs?

It would be nice to have XLR inputs and both XLR and RCA outputs..

Yeah, analog or digital inputs would be nice. I think I may try the 8 channel mic pre-amp, ADA8000 as a gain control for my DEQ / DCX system to set relative levels of all 6 channels.

You may want to shoot me an email reminder in 2 - 4 months. It will be that long before I have time & money to try it.

What type opamps do they use?

Cheers,

Hi,

They don'use opamps, they use 2SJ74, 2SK130 and 2SK30 FET transisors.

The assembling procedure is described here : Kit instructions

Volume control is available as a kit or as a ready to use unit. Check here : Special offer

Cheers

Thierry

That all looks very nice indeed! It's too bad my K5600 kit arrived two days ago by mail... Go figure ... Maybe something to try out later as it look like it could be a nice upgrade from the Altronics kit.
