Default New High-quality Attenuator ...

If you looking for a high cost-effective attenuator,
I recommend the new one from Allnic audio, Korea.
This is fourty-one steps silver contact precision rotary switch attenuator and they used the non-inductive SMD resisters.
There are 10K and 100K ohm attenuator for both stereo and balanced mode. The cost is around the 70 USD for stereo and 140 USD for balanced except for shipping fee.

You can see more information : http://www.allnicaudio.co.kr/

Seungyun Lee,
Your BOSOZ pictures on your website is what inspired me to build mine and yes I'm still looking for a decent cost effective balanced attenuator. How to order one?

As Variac said,
you can contact Allnic audio with email: allnicaudio@dreamwiz.com.
Now they can only take an order by e-mail.
If you have any problem on your order, I will help you :-)

Those look nice.

However i'm partial to the Electroswitch attenuator as they are completely sealed. In time, open contact switching accumulates dust which makes undesirable crackly noises.

I just received a DACT balanced stereo attenuator for around 150 euros which is equivalent to 150 usd. It's sealed with gold plated contacts and discrete smd resistors.
look here www.dact.com/html/attenuators.html

protos,

The DACT attenuator was my 2nd choice. However they didn't make a 5Kohm balanced version. Also the the blank Electroswitches were on sale at $30 each (still kicking myself for not buying more). But even at today's price of $60 usd, it's by miles cheaper than the DACT.

BTW, isn't gold too soft for contact switching? What thickness is the gold electroplating on them?
