    Used To CareTop Contributor: Photography5.0 out of 5 starsVerified Purchase Clean, Adjustable, Light, Compact, reasonable cost Reviewed in the United States on February 2, 2012 Bought two of these so the line out from my pro mixer can be fed into the XLR mic-in''s of my Zoom H4n recorder.

See more Bought two of these so the line out from my pro mixer can be fed into the XLR mic-in''s of my Zoom H4n recorder. The Shure A15LA line-to-mic adapter cuts the signal by 50dB and only 50dB. That''s too much attenuation. These Hosa''s give me selectable 20dB, 30dB or 40dB of attenuation. Just right.

    I send 0dB tone from the mixer''s line-out XLR through the Hosa attenuator set at -40dB, and adjust the H4n''s input level until the VU reads -20dB on the H4n. This allows me to run the H4n''s input at about 37 of its 100 units.

    If I set the Hosa to the -30dB switch position, the H4n''s input level is at 5 units for the VU meter to read -20dB.

    At these settings, I get 20dB of headroom on the H4n to avoid distortion. I can safely run my mixer to bounce at 0dB and occasionally peak at +15dB or +20dB without fear of driving the H4n into distortion.

    This also does not require me to run the H4n''s input up so high that I start getting noise. Using the Shure A15LA, I had to run the H4n at about 75 units...a little more than I wanted to.

    And considering I got two of these Hosa''s delivered for the same price as one Shure attenuator, I consider this an excellent, high performance deal.

    The unit is 3/4" diameter and 3-1/2" long when installed, 4" overall (the female XLR connector extends past the main barrel 1/2"). The dB selector slide switch is easily moved. May want to tape or hot glue it in place so it doesn''t move accidentally. (Hot melt glue works great for semi-permanent yet removable "locks" as it leaves no residue like tape. Also allows you to see the setting easily.)

See more I also own the Audio-Technica AT8202, which is a little more than double the price. Gets the job done just like the AT8202. Only difference this allows for more attenuation up to -40db. The sound quality is the same, very transparent, I can''t hear a difference between the two. Where this lacks is the build quality, it defintely feels really cheap. I wouldn''t be rough with this, it feels like it won''t last long, one wrong move and it''ll break. I''d say this is more for home, than professional use. 6 people found this helpful Helpful Report Brian H.4.0 out of 5 starsVerified Purchase For my use -30dB is fine, but I expect at an event featuring multiple ...

See more I needed to reduce the signal off the record out of a professional mixer at our events to allow a Zoom H4N to record without distortion. I seem to be able to make clean recordings on either the -30dB or -40dB setting depending how the mixer is being operated. For my use -30dB is fine, but I expect at an event featuring multiple djs where it may get overly pushed the -40dB setting may be safer. This corrected an issue where my recorder is designed to receive input from consumer devices--which are 40dB different than a pro mixer--the record out on the mixer is -10db so I had a gap of 30 to bridge.

    If you are encountering a similar issue with the Zoom, note that the XLR inputs have a pre-amp that will overload even with this device, you need to use a 1/4" adapter to connect this device to the instrument in on the Zoom. I rated this 4* because it is still a HOSA style connection and I can see the connection wearing with use.

I use it to reduce the line level input from a guitar amplifier''s voiced line out. I had a pre-amp signal level I could not trim down any further. I have two other amps from other mfg''s connected to the board on separate channels in same manner without a problem. I hadn''t been able to track that amp without a mic on it, which I didn''t easily have the space for. The -30db setting works for me whether clean or with gain. Created some headroom on the line trim setting that I hadn''t had before. Additionally,the switch is located for easy access. It''s tall, and I had to pull some additional slack in cable for it to be connected properly. One person found this helpful Helpful Report Drew J.

See more I have a Shure PG58 Mic which doesn''t have an internal gain on the receiver, and on my DJ Controller which is a Denon MC6000MK2, the signal comes in way to hot and since the Denon doesn''t have full kill on the input knob (it goes to -16Db) it''s still too hot and loud.

    I bought this since the reviews of this device were good and I was told that it would fix my issues. Perhaps a little skeptical, I connected it and was instantly wowed! I cut the signal by -20 (though I can do -30, and -40), and the levels were perfect and crystal clear.

    If you have a situation similar to me, definitely purchase one of these. You won''t regret it!

See more Upon receipt of two new Hosa ATT-448 attenuators, I tested them with a Neutrik MR-PRO "Minirator" signal generator and a Neutrik ML1 "Minilyzer" to check input impedance and verify the actual attenuation factor. One of them looks reasonable with good balance between pins 2 and 3 and an input load impedance of about 880 ohms into the Minilyzer (which itself measures 39k) or unterminated. However, the other pad has an input load of over 50k unterminated, and when connected to the Minilyzer, this drops to 10k with an unbalance shift to Pin 2 because pins 3 is apparently open. So now I''ll need to return that dud to the seller and hopefully obtain a working replacement without paying for shipping.
