I think the NLE gear is in fact DACT gear.Keep the stepped attenuator. Set it up as a shunt, using a Riken Ohm resistor.Use this as a passive pre amp.Throw the NLE 19 away, or the AKSA 55. I have a NLE 19 (DACT line stage). It is very hi-fi. It pulls the music apart. It is dynamic and detailed, but not musical. If you use it at 0 db gain, watch out for oscillation This line stage spoils all the good things that an AKSA 55 does.Use the attenuator as a passive until you can afford a GK-1.Anyone ...

Hi SamYes, that is the site. I have a GK-1, AKSA 55, 93db efficient speakers and a smallish room. I use a 39K shunt resistor. I took the GK-1 to a friends with 86 db efficient speakers. He would be better suited with a 10K to 20K resistor.My DACT stepped attenuator is also 10K
Hi SamA shunt mode attenuator, has the signal going through a resistor (say 27K, and you may as well get the best, hence the Riken Ohm). The DACT is used to shunt the signal to earth. John R did this with his DACT. It sounded a lot better than my memory of my DACT set up as per normal.I have since made the change to my GK-1 (using a DACT). You don't touch the resistors that are in the DACT.The following site has an awful lot on attenuators, including how to wire a shunt attenuator. http://www.goldpt.com/info.html
