Default pass labs x2

Hello someone updated the preamplifier PASS LABS X2?
The capacitors are very cheap and spoil the circuit resistance impreso.El problem is in the size of the capacitors capacitors to know someone.

The X2 have a good capacitors inside, IMMO a step up capacitor (In quality) are too big for this unit (V-Caps or something like this). My advice is leave the unit like is, and make a new X2 with a proper size pcb for big capacitors.

P.S. I recently bought a Aleph L with a disastrous mod, someone changed the resistor level control by a Alps blue potentiometer, arggg!.

Please post in English it's an international forum and not everyone is capable of reading Español like you and I do.
It's not against your language but the fact that others can not understand you!

Thanks,
Muchas gracias !

José

Have a stepped attenuator (resistor) (Much better track than a Alps) close to Goldpoint units Click the image to open in full size.

The v1.2 have the same attenuator with two circuits (Part of the run are in passive mode)

Surely the choice of the attenuator is down to the constructor.

I actually prefer the ALPs pots. Until such times as someone produces a 40 step ladder attenuator. (or more)
