I was wondering if it would be possible to bypass the input resistor on the Charizle board and use a 20k pot such as the DACT in its place. It sounds like it would work in theory, but would it sound better? Thanks for your input guys.

The input resistor is part of the feedback loop on the inputs. It sets the gain along with the feedback resistor. How were you thinking of connecting it? __________________ Take the Speaker Voltage Test!

With Rin=22K you can trim Rfdbk from 50K (gain=2.2) to 1K (gain=0.04). In theory that could replace volume control."

Running an opamp at less than unity gain (gain=0.04) can cause all sorts of stablity problems. __________________ Take the Speaker Voltage Test!
