      it does exactly what it says very well and excellent build quality, feels like it was made from a solid piece of metal. although is it flawless for me, there is one drawback i could think of, the cables are pretty short so if your speakers are far apart this maybe be a problem for you and you made need extensions.

      Simple level control

      This is a cheap alternative for Mackie BigKnob and Presonus Monitor Station. It's not the best controller money can buy, but it does the trick if you don't need the extra features.Read complete review

      This is a cheap alternative for Mackie BigKnob and Presonus Monitor Station. It's not the best controller money can buy, but it does the trick if you don't need the extra features.

      I noticed that when the volume is low (7 o'clock), the left channel volume is lower than the right channel. It could be a problem on my unit, but at this price range, don't expect perfect linearity.

      Even with this issue, it still feels better than using the rotary encoder on my MOTU 8Pre.

      You will also need to buy 2 pairs of XLR balanced audio cables, check your interface output. I had to get a TRS/XLR pair for the output and then XLR/XLR to connect to the HS80m monitors.

        Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Analog Stereo Volume Control:

        Works as advertised, does exactly what it's supposed to do, and does it well. Surprisingly high-quality, and I was pleasantly surprised I liked it more than expected. I use it between a USB audio interface to my computer and a pair of active monitors to control the volume of the audio interface's xlr outs because it shares a volume with the headphone jack. Already had xlr cables that I connected to the ones that come with the device (which are too short for my desktop studio). It is incredibly simple to connect, a good build quality, good cables, good weight, good size, good shape, easy operation, with quite sensitive incremental volume adjustment. Left and right are perfectly equal volume as each other. There is nothing that is not great about it. It is really awesome, and I'm glad I bought it.

            The control works very well, I read some reviews that one channel cuts out at low volume, but I haven't noticed this, it is smooth and has simplified my work area. I would recommend this.

              This product is just what is needed if you want to minimize your system to remove signal path of a preamp. I use one from usb DAC to power amp and use XLR to RCA phono adapters. The product allows you to bring the voltage output from DAC to one that is in a better range for my power amp. The depth of soundstage and clarity of backgrounds have improved. The range of the volume control is great.

                  Quality materials, works exactly as described. Allows instant volume changes; no more fumbling to reduce loud sources! Only nit would be that the cables connecting the monitors (after the breakout from the single cable going to the control) aren't long enough. Might be a bit pricey I suppose but well worth the money for the quality and convenience it provides IMO.

                      Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Analog Stereo Volume Control:

                      As a straightforward, dead simple level control between any pro (XLR) signal source and any pro (XLR) means of playback (power amp or powered speakers), the Level Pilot is probably unbeatable. The two stereo channels are ganged for control by the single knob, which works silently and smoothly. Level change is gradual, yet you can drop volume suddenly, if need be. It fits into any small travel bag or gear pocket and is quite durable. The cables permit the control knob to sit 6 ft/2m from where it connects — very handy.

                      High-quality adapters for inputs/outputs other than XLR-3 should not audibly degrade performance.

                                The perfect and SIMPLE way to control audio coming out of my mixer that has a lot of different sources. This way I don't have to keep rolling over to the mixer to control the volume to my powered monitors. I wish I did this a LONG time ago. You'll probably need to add a coulple of your own XLR cables to get it set up just right but chances are you've got a lot of those that have accumulated over time.:)

                                  Perfect for anyone with powered monitors that don't have a means for volume control on their interface. Allows one to output full resolution from their interface and control volume in the analog domain. I own a Metric Halo 2882 and this item saves me from having to use the software monitor controller I use to use. One less window on my computer screen! Plus everyone loves a physical knob compared to messing around with a mouse. Simple to set up and use. Nice weight to the unit and smooth control. You are going to need cables to get to your monitors as the ones provided are way to short to make it there. A winner overall!

                                  Very smooth and quiet operation.... a very simple design - yet a needed component for me in my setup - and it's built using quality components.
                                  I would have given it 5 Stars however the cable design is lacking. They do not provide enough cabling on the pigtail to connect your speakers if they're any more than about a foot apart. I had to get some patch cords which increased my overall purchase total.

                                    I used a mixer in my studio for years, just to control the monitor's volume. I needed space and just a volume control with quality. Then i found Level Pilot, an amazing simple gear that solved my problem.
                                    Also, it's beautiful !

                                    it does exactly what it says very well and excellent build quality, feels like it was made from a solid piece of metal. although is it flawless for me, there is one drawback i could think of, the cables are pretty short so if your speakers are far apart this maybe be a problem for you and you made need extensions.
