Glasshouse / NOS Audio Note switch / Takman 0.25W carbon film stereo shunt stepped attenuator

Glasshouse / NOS Audio Note switch / Takman 0.25W carbon film stereo shunt stepped attenuator

Audio Note has moved over to a new in-house designed switch for their recently launched range of stepped attenuators. As a result, we were able to acquire the remaining stock of their old switches at a very reasonable cost. With a shortage of chose of high-quality accurate stereo taper potentiometers more and more people are turning to stepped attenuators to achieve neutral channel-matched volume controls. Normally stepped attenuators are relatively expensive so we are happy to announce that we are able to provide a stereo shunt attenuator kit for £43.13 + vat + carriage. We are also selling the mono version.

the Glasshouse stereo stepped attenuator offers 23 volume positions from mute to near full volume, through our tried and testes 2dB steps values of resistors. The front of the switch does possess a "non-turn" lug of 3.5mm diameter x 5mm in length that protrudes through the front panel. This can be removed with cutters if not required.

Dimensions

Shaft: 6mm diameter x 13mm length

Bush: 10mm diameter x 10mm length

Body, including resistors fitted (internal part): 45mm x 50mm (oval shaped) x 32mm height  

The front of the switch does possess a "non-turn" metal lug of 3.5mm diameter x 5mm in length that protrudes through the front panel, so provision is needed. This can be removed with cutters if not required. If not a 3.5mm diameter hole that is 13.5mm distance from the centre hole of the shaft is required.

 

The kit is supplied with the following

  • A full pack of 0.25W Takman Carbon Film resistors, each resistor value labeled with its step number.
  • NOS Audio Note 2 pole 23-way switch
  • Mundorf 3.8% silver solder x 1.5m
  • SOCT-26: Neotech Solid Copper Wire, 1/0.45mm x 0.4m
