Audiolab 8000a volume control repair


2013-03-17 8:59 pm
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.
