A 6-channel volume/balance control. A pure Class A analog control circuit which accepts ultra-high transparency SACD (Direct Stream Digital) or DVD-A surround formats with up to six power amp channels, while avoiding the digital processing degradation of surround-sound processors.
AUDIOXPRESS Feb 2003 (v.34#2) pg. 6

A hybrid-design stereo control unit operates in line-level or phono mode. It features separate right- and left-channel volume controls, instead of a balance control, to prevent crossover distortion. Uses cascaded FETs in the phono section and high-perveance tubes in the line amplifier section. Est. cost: $90.
