    In thinking of implementing an volume pot. I bought the amp recommended in the BOM. Is it possible to use one of the pots pictured with it? And how would I go about it?

    The Amp is designed for push-buttons to lower/rise the volume (VUP/VDN). However, you could use these pots, if you connect them to the volume input - but they are mono!

    Hmmm, mono won't do. So one of these instead?

    Could you fill me in on how to wire it? I assume VUP/VDN go to the outer posts of the posts on the pot and the centre is ground?

    I notice the amp says 5v. Where do I connect it to, 7.4 or 3.3v?

    You can run the amp off of 3.3v with no issues. Only difference I found when I powered it off of 3.3 rather than 5 was that the volume adjusted considerably quicker.

    Could that be remedied with other components between the amp and the pot? As you might be able to tell, I'm quite lacking when it comes to electronics know-how, but something like this must be fixable.
