Default Opinions on this tone control

Would this be audiophile quality? I can't find anything better. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

General type potentiometers including Alpine pots are not so good for the sound.
DACT is a much better option.

imho tone control is not a proper way to correct audio tract anyway. Too many efforts implemented in good audio equipment to have even response in 20Hz-20kHz band to spoil it with tone control afterwards.

Much better way would be get modern Ashly equalizer and do setup once using equipment that can measure audio system response.

Check out Rod Elliots P97 pre amp board. I use them in my pre amp/control unit. Put in metal film resistors and LM4562 or BB op amps. Sounds very nice.

I have a Behringer DEQ2496 with ECM8000 mic. Used the auto eq function and sound is worse - dead, lifeless.
Besides have too many boxes, wires, I/C's, power cords as it is.

Jrockhead, yes Rod Elliot makes some nice stuff. Problem is, that board boosts 20Hz and 20kHz.

Hi-Fi Preamplifier

I'm looking for 100 hz and 10kHz. Is there a way to change to boost frequencies???
