I saw a post in the other place, that talked about inline attenuators. I posted that it would be a simple matter to be able to construct your own.\r\nSo this is my recipe for an inline attenuator [approx 10db].\r\n\r\nThose nice people at Rothwell are charging £38 a pair, to put this project into perspective.\r\n\r\nTake one pair each of RCA plugs and sockets. The sockets shaft must be able to fit the cable clamp of the RCA plug. you will require two high tolerance 10k5 resistors. Trim the res. so only 1mm of lead is left, scrape with a stanley blade to provide a clean metal surface. \r\n\r\nSolder the res. to the centre pin of plug and socket, then clamp the socket to the plug. this should provide a sturdy connection. Oh yes throw the rca plug cover. \r\n\r\nRepeat for other channel\r\n\r\nIn my system this provides about 20 clicks of the volume control at 0.5 Db a click.....approx 10db attenuation [hopefully !] Unless you know better as they say.\r\n\r\nHow do they sound....\r\nWell in my system no difference, just quiter. \r\n\r\nBut I've an old Incatech Claymore with a poor vol. pot with mis matched channels at low level. This now sound much better now it's passed the worn tracks and both channels are in balance.
