How to Add Balance Attenuator


2010-11-01 1:56 am
I am brand new to this site and have a technical question. I want to add a DACT balance attenuator to my Quicksilver preamp that lacks its own balance. Is it possible to insert the DACT using the preamp's tape loop, and, if so, where might I find how to do this?

Many thanks from a DIY newbie.
Welcome aboard, Bojack.

I'm afraid a balanced attenuator won't turn the unbalanced input on your Quicksilver into a balanced input. The DACT is intended to be used with input stages which are already balanced.

If you want a balanced input, you can add an input transformer. This would give you a balanced input without any other modifications to the Quicksilver.
