The SA1X Precision Balanced Level Control
Goldpoint SA1X
The SA1X is a transparent sounding balanced stereo precision level control. 
It is commonly used between mixing consoles and amplified speakers. 
Pro Audio users typically rave about its clear sound quality. 
No distortion is added to your signal path while performing level control. 
(Active preamps add in at least some distortion.)
Goldpoint precision, 4-section (balanced stereo) Stepped Attenuator -
for low noise and excellent channel-to-channel signal level matching.
Ultimate sonic clarity and precision at a reasonable price.


Inside the SA1X
Level Control:  Goldpoint Balanced Stereo 4-section Mini-V Precision Stepped Attenuator,
                         with low-noise, 0.1%, thin film resistors.
Connectors:  One set of Inputs, one set of Outputs. Neutrik XLR, with gold-plated pins.
Wiring:  High grade, silver-plated copper, multi-stranded, with Teflon jacketing.
Chassis:  Aluminium clam-shell, sandblasted and black anodized, 1/4" front and rear panels.
Dimensions:  2.3" Tall  x  6.2" Wide  x  6.6" Long
                     note: As of July 2014, the SA1X uses our 6.2" (wider) chassis. (Pictures show older 4.7" width.)
Weight:  approx.: 1 1/4 lb.

About Stepped Attenuator Values:
We usually put 25K stepped attenuators into our SA1, SA2, and SA4 Passive Preamps. The 25K value allows the greatest flexibility, so these units can be used with nearly all solid-state and vacuum tube gear. We usually put 10K stepped attenuators into our SA1X and SA2X Precision Level Controls as these controls are most commonly used with amplified speakers (which have internal solid-state amplifiers). However, if requested, we will ship your SA Passive Preamp / Precision Level Control with any value stepped attenuator you choose from our stocked values (5K, 10K, 20K, 25K, 50K, 100K, or 250K).

  About Passive Preamplifiers:
Installing an active preamplifier between a CD/DVD player and a power amplifier is not always the right thing to do. If your power amplifier has good input sensitivity and plenty of gain, an active preamplifier can act as unneeded, redundant amplification circuitry, degrading the overall system sound quality. It follows that removing unnecessary circuitry from your signal path can improve sound quality. A passive preamp is often all that is needed between a signal source and a power amplifier.
The precision stepped attenuators used in Goldpoint passive preamps are more transparent sounding than the typical potentiometers found in other preamps - active or passive. If you are serious about great sound quality and already have adequate signal amplitude, enjoy a passive preamp in your system, such as a superior sounding Goldpoint SA1, SA2, or SA4.
