Penny & Giles : Good or not for HI-FI ??
 
These kind of potentiometer are use in a lot of mixer console.... but these pot are good for HI-FI audio ???

Somebody tried it ?

They are the best , probably better than any Alps , Noble...
Aragon used them in the reference preamps.
Penny&Giles are used in best professional audio consoles, even in video mixers where signals are in MHz range.

The Penny & Giles has a veil on the music not experienced with a stepped discrete resistor attenuator.:cool:

I had the pleasure of living with a Jeff Rowland Coherence One (Series II) preamplifier for almost 20 years. The Coherence One had a Penny & Giles attenuator and to my ears it was clean, grain-free and lovely. There are many great-sounding attenuators on the market, and P&G is one of them.

Scott

was it this model from the attached photos?
I think this attenuator was (no longer available) oil-filled version

P&G is just the most relieable pot on the market, but damned they are expensive.
My preamps through the last 25 years has been equipped with them, and there is still no scratching or any noise at all when turned. Just nothing.
This is simply state of the art quality, and the most unbeliveable is, that I can still order a new one of the same type.

Thumbs up for P&G
