Product Description

Balanced In-Line XLR Attenuator - 20dB (600ohm)

QTY 1 - Front and rear views shown.

How it works - If you experience problems trying to finely tune the volume on your amplifier, the chances are that the input into your amplifier is too high. The symptom is relatively easy to spot as you will notice that the volume is loud enough when the dial on your amplifier is in the 9 o'clock position, but is too loud when the dial has reached the 10 o'clock position. It is therefore almost impossible to finely control the volume.

This problem is otherwise known as 'excess gain' (which causes your sound to be too high at lower settings). Our XLR attenuator uses precision resistors to reduce the excess.

How to use - The XLR attenuator should be plugged into the input on your integrated amp or pre/power amp. The volume range on the dial will be increased from two to five hours from where it was before, i.e. broadening the previous range (9 to 10 o'clock) to 9 - 2 o'clock, thus giving greater control over the volume.

Why buy? - To have greater control over the volume of your system thus enabling you to have the perfect volume level.

Oxygen free copper conductors - To increase signal quality across the attenuator.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!! 30 April 2013
These in in-line attenuators saved my proverbial bacon AND sanity when trying to record a line source (i.e. from my location mixer) into a Zoom H4n.

Rather than have to buy ridiculously expensive convertors, two of these did the job perfectly at a fraction of the cost.
