Which brands do you prefer? And a second question: Which brand offers potentiometer, that I can complete disassemble for cleaning service and maintenance?
By all rotary switches this isn't a problem, but by the potentiometers, that I know (Alps, Piher, Vishay), unfortunately this is not or only partially possible.
Thank you very much for your advices

Because the URL of the weblink here will be suppressed (bad idea) and only the headline of the weblink is displayed, you overlook this company. At the fifth position after "Switchable Attenuators" this brand is mentioned.

Khozmo Acoustic from poland looks very fine, many thanks for this advice

Who knows more about new brand names about www_jancocorp_com?

Someone else on this forum recommended these minature stepped attenuators. I bought one and the performance and tracking are superb. They are also tiny and very inexpensive:

SMT Resistor Step Attenuator 50K Volume Control on eBay (end time 14-Nov-09 19:31:05 GMT)

I'd never buy a pot given the number of high quality low cost stepped attenuators on ebay ;-)

this could be very intersting, because the size seems like the commonly Alps standart potis. Unfortunately I cannot find the brand name in this auction. Do you know the brand of this 50K Step Attenuator?

Noble + Alpha are good bangs for the ruble
