Default TVC vs. Stepped Attenuator

Stepped attenuators are popular amongst this crowd (i.e. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/pass-...ttenuator.html).

Are there any DIY Auido lurkers out there who own both TVC (transformer) and Stepped Attenuators?

I've always considered the TVC (Sliver Rock, Sowter, etc) to be the "gold standard", although I've never auditioned one. I'd like to hear comments from people who have owned and lived with both types.

Passive resistor preamps present serious system-matching issues. TVCs are a lot easier to fit in most systems. Having lived with both my preference is for an active pre using a stepped attenuator.
