I am using this Preamp for over 10 years now and there is definately no problem with the pots.

Very, very sad News.
I have gotten Leonard Cohen "Live Songs" as a present 40 years ago.
At this time I heard Status Quo, Scorpions and Queen.
This record changed my musical horizon. I adored him and his work since then.
