Default Audiolab 8000a volume control repair

Hi, I have an Audiolab 8000a amp with a faulty volume control. Its a 30K log potentiometer but via the usual component suppliers I can only find either 20K or 50K.

With this amp does the pot simply vary the signal to the output stage and thus installing a different value pot will simply change the sensitivity or volume at the low end or is it controlling some form of electronic volume control and thus the value of the pot is more crucial.

All help is greatly appreciated.

I doubt anyone would notice the difference 47k or 50k is prefered. Will it not clean with servisol?

dropped onto volume knob and broke pot so no amount of contact cleaner will fix it!

I was leaning towards fitting the 50k pot. Thanks for the info.
