    Decent product....I assume it's for use in attenuating a CD to amp input?.....if it is,it's also worth looking at both Chord and Kimber interconnects which can be supplied with attenuators built into the plugs of the interconnects.

    Also,if you really want the best,in the form of a passive preamp,the Audio Synthesis Passion is superb,but not cheap.

    They didnt sound too good to my ears, fair play i could turn the volume up a lot more but the music seemed to lose a lot of detail

    I didn't notice any difference in sound quality from the CD but the attenuator gave me a lot more control over the volume.

    Thanks guys!! A mate of mine was thinking of getting them as his old Arcam gets loud over 9.00 and he needs more control. I'll tell him not to bother! The tightar*e needs to upgrade anyway!!! :D
