Default dual volume control

Hi all,

I'd like to install 2 volume controls in my preamp. I want to compare the sound of an Alps pot with a stepped resistor type. I anticipate the stepped attenuator will sound better but the remote functionality might be convenient sometimes. Complicating the issue is that the Alps pot I have is part of an IR remote board. Both get input before the preamp circuit.

I'd like to simply install a toggle switch between the two. What is the best way to do this so both input and output of each volume is disconnected from the circuit when not switched?

Thanks,

gary

A quad pole switch would work. You could also make do with two DPDT switches.
