Re: Choosing attenuator resistances 10K/100K/250K

193.216.237.10

When at 100% there is no attenuation, wether 10k or 250kohms. The attenuator's impedance should match the circuit following it, and at the same time not load the source. 100k would be the safest since that's the original value, though either should work fine.
You need more gain if you want to play louder, a different attenuator will not make the preamp play louder.
Attenuators sure sound better than pots though, it a good upgrade.
