in-line attenuators  

in-line attenuators


In-line attenuators, RCA (phono) format.

Reduces signal level to improve control of volume at low levels.  Can improve signal to noise ratio in pre/power amps.

The price is for a pair of attenuators.

choosing the right option
Our standard attenuators are designed to be used on the input sockets of pre-amps, power amps or integrated amps rather than the output sockets of source equipment such as CD players.
The level of attenuation that we recommend for the vast majority of applications is -10dB.  We also offer -15dB and -20dB attenuators where a greater level of attenuation is required.  15dB is useful when a system has even more excess gain than is common.  20dB is a lot of attenuation usually is not required.  10dB is the right choice in about 80% of cases, in our experience.

We also offer "source" attenuators.  These have the input on the male end of the attenuator and the output on the female end and are intended to the used on the output sockets of CD players and pre-amps (as opposed to the input sockets of pre-amps and power amps, which is where the standard attenuators are used).  This means the direction of the signal flow is opposite to our standard in-line attenuators and allows them to be used with equipment where space behind is restricted or the use of DIN connectors would make it otherwise impossible.  Usually, though not always, this means Naim equipment.
Source attenuators are available with 10dB, 15dB or 20dB signal reduction.

Reviewer: Pankaj from Washington   5 Stars
Not a big reviewer but all I can say is that my LFD LE 4 amp and evolution acoustics micro 1 speakers were hugely benefited by using the Rothwell attenuators 10DB . It does exactly what the website claims it will do. Great accessory many thanks.
