Thumbnail Filmstrip of DACT Stepped Attenuator - Stereo Images
The audio volume controls CT2 is a high quality stepped 24-position attenuator. It was designed for maximum sonic quality, accuracy and reliability.
The DACT CT2 attenuator is available in 10, 20, 50 and 100 kOhm. This makes it equally suited for audiophile applications and for professional applications. The series resistor networks consist of 23 non-inductive, low noise, SMD metal film resistors. The layout of the PC board and the choice of SMD resistors have reduced the signal path to a minimum length (typical five times shorter than conventional stepped attenuator designs with leaded resistors). The PCB design combined with the special resistors also account for the very low series inductance and the very low stray capacitance. The result is a bandwidth beyond even the most demanding audiophiles requirements.
