Cheap DACT attenuator (6 steps)

Using 6-Pole, 2-Position, 1-gang rotary switch from dicksmith. Any brand will do and the more the pole, the better. The 2 position provide left and right channels.

Design the attenuation by using the online calculator something like this, using dB attenuation steps of 56-39-26-12-0:

So the theoretical R values from gnd to signal in ohms are:

But for nearest real value use:

This is better than my blue-aps pots. Total cost $4.
