yes,perhaps we should shake our big electrolytic cans like the barkeepers their drinks.........only shaked,not stirred.
may say, a shaked b1 should give the better sound........

Has anyone any experience of this kit ?

Upgrade 3Pcs PGA2311 Volume remote control preamplifier | eBay

I'm still using the ALPS pot, waiting for my:

eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

Stepped attenuator - No. 2.

The PGA2311 does look quite impressive on its spec sheet - how is it to the ears ?

Hope the quality of the switch will be better in the Valab than my last stepped attenuator.

The last one became intermittent after only a few months.

I think they of reasonable quality. HiFi collective do a similar one using what looks like the same switch but a bit more expensive.

We have used an other ebay kit with PGA2311 (it has the same circuit design)

How is it to the ears ?
Excellent, with open stage and very analytic sound!
Don't puts any "colour" on sound.
Keeps the same "character" on sound with passive output dac, also

The only handicap is the remote control. It "plays" with other controls like dvd or media players. Special from those from China, Taiwan e.t.c

This kit - with PGA2311 - can improoved with Sala's Shunt Regulators. With this PSU the kit is superior!

At the next photo, the original PSU has remooved and changed with the two Sala's SSLV 1.1
