Tim, Denmark, July 2002:

Danish Audio ConnecT (DACT) is introducing a new line of 8-channel volume controls to meet the demand from the expected growing market of 7.1 channel Home Theater audio systems.
The targeted customer group is both high-end audio equipment manufacturers and DIYs. Audiophiles will find the new attenuators valuable for either upgrading ready-made 8-channel equipment or building their own active or passive 8-channel preamps.
The new volume controls build on the well-know high-precision stepped audio attenuators from DACT.
The new attenuators have 8 separate decks to allow simultaneously adjusting the volume of eight audio channels.
The 8-gang attenuators feature 24 positions like the other DACT audio attenuators, and same unique specifications like for instance:

-  Bandwidth (10kOhm):


-  Channel matching:


-  THD:


-  Mechanical life, min.:

25,000 cycles

Available resistance are 10, 20, 50, 100, 250 and 500kOhms.
For more specifications we refer to the attenuator pages at the DACT web site.
