In-Line WBT-0110 Attenuators
Upgrade your purchase with these options:
Our inline attenuators allow you to attenuate any existing non-attenuated RCA interconnect.
The attenuating components are mounted in high quality locking nextgen WBT 0110Cu phono plugs to give a low resistance connection; they're perfect for testing different attenuation levels before buying a Kimber or Russ Andrews analogue interconnect, or adding attenuation to any other manufacturer's analogue interconnect.
How to use
Once you have assessed what level of attenuation you need, it’s simple to fit the in-line attenuators to your amplifier. The attenuating components are housed in a high quality, locking WBT phono plugs. Simply plug these into the CD input on the back of your pre or integrated amp and turn the barrel to lock them in place. This provides a high quality, firm connection for you to then plug your interconnects into, remembering to ensure that the directional arrows on the interconnect are pointing towards the amp.
What level do you need?
To work out what level of attenuation you need, find out what the input sensitivity of your amplifier is (often printed in the specs as a mV figure.) Then find out what the output level of your CD player is - usually 2 volts.
Now consulting the chart below read across to find out what attenuation you need. So, for example, a CD player with a 2V output and an amplifier with 300mV input would need an attenuation level of -11dB.
