There are two volume control options available for selected Blue Circle products
in addition to the standard controls offered in the stock configuration.
Motorized Remote Volume Control:
This option is available for the BC3 Despina & Galatea, and BC3000 preamps. In the
BC3 Despina & Galatea, and BC3000 it is installed internally and the unit can be
switched between manual and remote control. This allows the user to chose between
the convenience of remote or the substantially better sonic quality of the stock
Shallco volume controls.
The remote is radio controlled. It does not depend on line of sight and has a range
of up to 80 feet and can go through drywall so you can control the volume even you
are in the next room. It is quite compact as it only requires two buttons. Actually
it is so compact that we have added a cast Blue Circle logo with key ring. The remote
can hang from a small hook next to the amp or next to the pile of remotes on your
Shallco Ladder Attenuator:
Until now we have reserved the Shallco volume control for our top of the line dual
mono preamplifiers. During our first serious listening session with the new BC21.1
we knew that it's vastly improved sonic character could be even more refined with
the addition of the Shallco control but we hesitated because of the increased cost.
The solution....offer it as an option! It is also available as an upgrade for existing
stock BC21.1 owners.
