MourQuiet Attenuator Now Available!
« on: April 29, 2016, 10:02:03 AM »
The first of several Stereomour II upgrades, the highly anticipated MourQuiet Attenuator, is now ready for purchase!

It is available as a stand alone upgrade or you can add it to a new Stereomour II purchase.

We are looking at a standard 3-6 week shipping time frame, so get those orders in early to beat the rush!

Will the loss of the balance control create any issues if i I choose to
bridge Stereomour(s) into monoblocks?

What purpose would a balance control provide on a monophonic amplifier?

The bridging I advocate for triode amps (wiring output transformer secondaries is series) is fairly insensitive to unbalanced gains.

But you would probably just connect one control section to both driver grids, so the imbalance between potentiometer sections that is common at low gain settings will not be an issue.
