Default Preamp with active gain and Balance control

Hello everyone, Im new to this forum and it has helped me greatly as Im building my own 50W integrated amplifier.
So here is the configuration im intending to implement for my pre-amp
Now here is the circuit with additional balance control too.
Heres my question would the gain for the new circuit be or Im I going wrong somewhere.

its xRV2 thats in parallel and not (1-x)RV2 and the parallel fixed resistor is used to change the control law of the potentiometer to a more logarithmic law i think . This design is from one of cambridge audios preamps maybe they didnt have accurate logarithmic potentiometer suppliers at the time.
