    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.

      Great build quality and sound quality. Each week I direct a team of 12 volunteers to produce our Sunday services. It is nice to provide an easy to use , independent volume control for each stations audio monitor. The TC Level Pilot is simple and well built. A great product all around.

                  I don't have an analog mixing desk so I needed something to control the monitor volume. This knob does the job perfectly. It feels smooth and solid and looks nice. A bit on the pricy side, though.

                  Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Analog Stereo Volume Control:

                  This is a solid product and a piece of cake to install. Two things about it I'd change: 1) A low volumes, the left monitor will cut out first and then the right. I mix at a very low volume, so it's something that I'd like solved but it wasn't a deal breaker for me as far as buying this to try it out.

                  2) cables are too short to reach my monitors so I had to buy a pair.

                  I knew about both of these issues before I bought this product because I saw it in a review from another user. I'm happy with this product.

                  Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Analog Stereo Volume Control:

                  The knob itself is great. It's a replacement for my first one. Any volume pot has a limited life compared to, for example, a much more expensive stepped volume attenuator with specific resistors for each volume level, usually at least 24 steps and the go higher from there depending on the hardware. The price from B&H was so good on the Level Pilot, I called off the search for a replacement pot when mine got dirty over time.

                    It's a nice, smooth knob and works flawlessly. The electronics are obviously high quality. It's decently hefty, but I could use a little more weight to it. The rubber bottom doesn't seem to grip my desk too well -- I think it has to with the heavy cable almost lifting the knob up a bit. So the knob is relatively heavy, but should outweigh the (heavy) cable by more.

                      Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Analog Stereo Volume Control:

                      I only needed a line level controller, not a lot of extra buttons & knobs, & this TC Level Pilot fills the bill. It operates smoothly & quietly, with a single control & balanced connectors for adjusting any 2-channel (stereo) signal. As others note, extra cables were needed for proper length & connections. I give this 4 stars, not 5, simply because I haven't had it long enough to determine it's durability. But, TC Electronic gear is well-made; I have a TC Finalizer Express that I've used for years with no problems. Lastly, B & H Photo has by far the best price on the TC Level Pilot. Thanks for a great deal on a needed piece of gear.

                        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.

                              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.

                                      Love this. I've bought several over the years for different projects.

                                      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.
