Looks like a motor driven pot. Many stereo receivers in the 1990s and later used these. What equipment are you repairing? I replaced the volume pot (complete with motor) in my Onkyo receiver a few years ago.

The pot is out of a Jolida FX10...and nothing wrong with the ALPS other than there is zero room in the FX10 for anything bigger than the original...very tight quarters in there!!!

Dear Sir,
Do you still have that ALPS pot ? Since few months now, I am looking for that blue velvet model .
Do you sell it ? is it ALPS RK27112MC 2X (?)k Logaritmic or Linear (?)

If there is no room in your Amp, you can try ALPS RK168 series.
all the best,

Thank you ,
I have searched a long time but there is a problem.Alps distribuitors have only Slotted type.I need RK27 Flat type D as we can see in the picture above .

Maybe there is a possibility to order the Flat D type but the quantity will be perhaps 100 pcs or something.

kind regards,

True, only in one place.I asked the seller a few days ago where are made that pot Alps in Japan or China (Soundwell factory) no answer until now the kat has eaten his tongue for sure . I believe we are talking about ALPS fake (Soundwell), looks 90% like ALPS Japan.
