Actually, this passive Volume knob is the same thing you can see in any integrated Power Amp (the Volume Knob) just outside of the Power Amp for more convenient usage (on the desk)
So, I have to say from technical point of view there is no please for comparing the units as Big Knob or Avocet and McONE, it's just different devices.
We do build an "active" monitor controller see here;
and it's defiantly something else....
Let me get this straight -- you say this thing is the same as the one in the integrated power amp, and behaves the same way.

You actually sell this stuff and you don't understand the effect of the cable capacitance (the cabling that connects your device) on the implied RC circuit
