    a very big, bold, loud ME TOO!

    The steps are *always* too big.

    @Thad E Ginathom you weren’t actually that loud because you were one step too low :-0

    I always wondered what a gold point would sound like in my stereo over Freya S/ OG saga without the stepped attenuators. I don't mind them on speaker rigs but I do not like them on headphones at all.

    I don't mind the clicks. What I mind *a lot!* is that so many headphone amps have such little volume range, particularly in high gain. It's as if manufacturers decided to build them for HE-6 (which they're almost always inadequate for anyway) instead of for normal headphones, such as HD-6, T50RP mods, &c.

    I personally have never had an issue with the amount of steps on the Saga or the Freya but if I were getting a Goldpoint I’d opt for the upgrade with more steps. IIRC their base is 24 steps.

    And then you've got the oddball Bottlehead preamp which has TWO rotary switches for volume, course steps at 9dB each and then a fine knob with 1.5dB steps.
