Why not, there are already people at diyaudio.com that own these pots. And they seem to be quite a good deal. So any suggestions about value to use in "The Wire"?

Owen has already answered this in the other thread, this cross posting makes it hard to follow.

yeah... not a good idea to cross-post like that. It's better to keep the discussion in the same place.

Regards,
Owen

Ok, I'll keep my questions here. Sorry for cross posting. I was just intending to get more opinions from different people. The Wire thread has a lot of readers. Anyways thak you guys for answers. But then again another question appeared about what pot should I buy for my SE-SE project. My budjet for pot will be 16$ including shipping to East europe. For the moment I don't cosider to spend more on pot. As in near future I won't have a DAC or a project with digital attenuation. Otherwise i would go potless.

Why not try out the Alps RK27, it should cover your needs until you've change for something a little more expensive.

Guess I should use a simple 10K audio taper, as far as there are a lot of fake alps out there. And for the future to start thinking about DAC with proper digital volume regulation like es9018, wm8741 or new WM8742.

Depends what source you want to use really and if you want to use more than one input into your headphone amp.

Worth pointing out that wm8742 isn't actually a step forward compared to the wm8741, its a newer version but is actually just a cheaper chip to manufacture, not a better chip.
