    I recently purchased the Integra DTC-9.4. I like the unit and I'll hopefully get around to writing my thoughts for the board. However, it does have one 'flaw.' The Zone 2 output is a fixed volume signal (instead of variable). Consequently, I need a way to control the volume for the second zone. Any thoughts? Perhaps a clean but cheap preamp?

    BTW, is it me or does this sort of implementation make little sense? [​IMG]

    Anyone have any suggestions? How 'bout a nice clean, cheap preamp I could buy?

    I know there's some Creek passive pre-amps with remote controls, and a Creeks with just one input and output, but I don't know if there's one unit with all of those.
    However, the defunct Chase Technology company used to make a remote-controlled passive volume control called the RLC-1. It might run about $20 on ebay.

    Hmmm, that sounds like a really stellar idea. I'll take a look for one on eBay! Thanks!

    Finding the RLC-1 might be a bit more difficult than I had anticipated. Anyone else have alternative suggestions or know where I can pick one of these babies up?

    Thanks!
