New Pot for Quickie
« on: March 30, 2017, 12:02:54 pm »
I have seen a few posts talking about upgrading the volume pot. Can I get some suggestions / links to tried and proven pots?? Thanks in advance.

Yes. It is a little smaller both in size and the solder connections. I used some 22ga teflon wire for the ground connection.

What is the resistance value for the volume pot?? I need to specify when I order one.

I have two quickie's.  The one that I call stock (not really) has two PEC mono pots 100K, the modified quickie had two Khozmo mono attenuators (were removed for another build) and now has a stereo Audio Note 100K, I really like this little pot.  In my opinion the Audio Note is an outstanding pot, I do not believe that unless you like the looks and have money to burn on the Khozmo or equal quality attenuator that their is very little difference in sound quality.

I try to use two mono pots or attenuators for balance control when possible.  I do not understand why one would use a stereo pot and a balance pot when two pots or attenuators accomplishes the same results.  Never did like the Alps pot, but since there is a new version with better solder lugs it is a good price choice, but not better than the PEC and not in the same league with the Audio Note, IMHO.

Sorry for the long post, taking a break from taxes.
