Stephen, How hard is it to match the left and right volume controls?

They're stepped with matched value resistors, so you just match the positions assuming there's no imbalance.

So they ‘click’ into a position and thus you can tell they are in the same place? If not, the anal-compulsive part of me would be constantly fiddling with one or the other.

I find it fascinating to have two volume controls.

Well, it's a dual-mono design, so it not only has two volume controls, it has two source input controls as well.

"Compromise" is a word that is anathema to Emmanuel Go...
