Question New volume control

What ever happened to the new volume control circuit that Pass Labs was working on. Did I miss it, or is it still in patent/design limbo? I couldn't find anything when I skimmed recent threads.

probably patent limbo. i saw a message a long time back where Pass said he was writing it up.

probably will come out about the same time as the X2 service manual appears on the web site

We've been shipping it for years, but unless the patent office
gets its head out of its behind, it will have to remain a trade
secret.

Default hmmm

thanks for the response. If I want to look at the bright side, I can note that I have three or four projects ahead of my preamp (and then there's the jet engine), so I won't be needing a volume control for a while

well, i seem to remember Pass saying something to the effect of "take a look inside and reverse engineer". i'd have a go at it, but the stores near me that sell gear at the Passlabs performance level are closed now. i haven't built up any relations with others that would take kindly to me asking techie questions with a screwdriver and digital camera in my hand

(but boy, it was fun while it lasted, though. learned a lot, met some cool people and actually helped sell some stuff ...)

maybe someone has has taken a look inside and can start some discussion ?

well I don't think he can stop anyone from reverse engineering it. the law allows that.

of course it doesn't mean he has to give us free samples to get us started.
