Hello everyone. I have just joined, though have managed to solve several problems over the last couple or three years by reading threads/posts, so thank you all for that. The question I have now concerns active/passive amp inputs. I have an Euphonic Audio Iamp 350 amp, about 10 years old. I recently serviced it, but I managed to damage a small circuit board on which the input jacks mount. Profanities were uttered, but I just read the rules so not here. I got around the problem by fitting two simple panel mount jacks (better quality Neutrik ones), and bridging across with little jumper cables soldered onto the board. The amp works fine, all good, but both inputs are now basically straight into the preamp or 'passive'. I would like to retain the option of an 'active' or attenuated gain input, as I like to use an EBS Multicomp pedal which makes the normal input a bit too 'lively', ie I can only set input gain at about the 1 mark before distortion begins to creep in. Is it not possible to put in a simple resistor inline in the 'hot' line of the 'active' input, before the preamp, and get a gain reduction of 10db or thereabouts? I understand this is the usual set up when amps have 'active' and 'passive' inputs. Key question if I am on the right track up to this point: What is the value of resistor needed? Thanks in advance for any help anyone is able to give, and thanks again everyone whose help I have already taken advantage of so far. Regards from an unseasonally freezing East Anglia, UK Joe Bernard.
