To be specific:
The Penny+Giles Rotary fader RF-15 was first used in the Mark Levinson ML-7 (there were some first models with the wirewound Spectrol pot like in the ML-1 though), the ML-6A. 7A and 6B the ML-10 and the No.26 andprobably the 26s.
JRDG uses one stereo for level and two monos for Balance in the Coherence One Series I & II.
Im not sure about Krell in this matter. The KRC I had (the first incarnation) had a Airpax motorized one my Krell KRS-2 had the Spectrol wirewound which I substituted for a RF-15.

is this oil filled and sealed potentiometer a good replace for the not longer available oil filled version from Penny & Giles ?

Multi-Channel Rotary Fader | Penny + Giles
Yep they're plastic conductive tapers just like the better Noble's, TKD 2CP's and Alps I believe. Do not now those oilfilled ones you quote but they seem to me as targeted for industrial applications but I believe that the Penny+Giles one was used for aviation purposes and so are most electronic parts in they use in audiogear of course
I never had issues with them and I prefered them above all other logarithmic volume solutions.

In the preamp model Aragon 18K you will find also a RF-15 version - have a look to the attachments:

That's a surprise.
The Krell would have used it in its premium line even more I suppose.

Never liked the TKD's with there flimsy soldering lugs.
Just bought a Coherence One Series II so I'm back in P+G territory again with three of them lined up behind a faceplate.

Default Happy New Year

Hi John,

Happy New Year to you.

I'm still running a pair of Levinson ML-2's and I was wondering how much of your knowledge/intellect is there in those designs?
My Krell technician (former Goldmund engineer) prefers the ML-2's over the successors the No. 20 and 20.5. I never heard those latter ones so I can't concur.
Are the ML-2's mainly your brainchilds?

To tiefbassuebertr:

Congratulations with your nice MF preamp.
Did not know the English made such expensive gear.
