    I've a 25R pre/7 power and actually quite like the twin pot arrangement on the 25R. What I didn't like were the knobs, like those shown in Dave's picture - they were soon removed and replaced by some "ordinary" round ones !

    I had a twin mono Croft 25 for a while. Thought I'd get used to the two volume pots but I never did, used to annoy the hell out of me to the point that I stopped using my analogue sources as much. I just left the 2 pots at the halfway point and used the volume control on my streamer setup This was part of the reason I changed to my current preamp. It DID sound good though
