DACT Newsletter issue 2, September 13th 2001.
Welcome to the second issue of the DACT Newsletter.
The DACT line of CT2 audio attenuators has been expanded. CT2 is now available with 1 deck (mono), 2 decks (stereo), 4 decks (balanced stereo) and 6 decks (AV audio). All of the above CT2 versions are available in 10, 20, 50, 100, 250 and 500kOhm. Following the completion of the CT2 family, the original CT1 attenuators will gradually be phasing out. See more here. CT2 is a newer and more compact design than our original CT1 attenuator. CT1 and CT2 offers same sound and specifications, but as CT2 has lower manufacturing cost, we are selling CT2 at lower prices than CT1.
New Application Note using DACT components "Build a solid state preamplifier using DACT components". Read the article by Mr. Satoru Kobayashi, published in the AudioXpress Magazine issue July 2001. Mr. Kobayashi’s preamplifier uses the CT100 phono stage module, CT101 line stage module, CT2 audio attenuator, CT3 input selector switch and CT-knob1 stainless steel knobs. The article is available here as a 1.79MB PDF file download. The article is very detailed and makes it possible for even less experienced DIYs to build a complete high-end preamplifier at very reasonable cost.
New testimonials on DACT products. We are frequently receiving feedback from satisfied customers who want to tell us about their experiences with DACT products. How about this one, which we received from PaT MorforD of Island Tube Works, and Pats Tube and Recording Equipment Schematics, Canada: ....................”These [DACT attenuators] have improved my stereo system SO MUCH that I can't believe it. Subjectively, about a 30% improvement in clarity (the headphone amp sees only the selector switch and ONE of the stepped attenuators...). I have been using both Bournes, and ALPS conductive plastic pots, as well as home made ladders with discrete regular resistors. They aren't even remotely CLOSE to these things.”................ Read the rest and more testimonials here.
Technical article comparing leaded resistors to Surface Mount resistor. DACT has just posted a new article about leaded resistors and the differences between leaded resistors and Surface Mount resistors. The article shows the electrical equivalent circuit of real-life resistors and compares leaded resistors to Surface Mount resistors. Read the complete article here.
