    If you take audio feeds from any source, you must have this item-NO EXCEPTIONS! Attenuators should be in every TV/video shooter's tool kit, you never know what the audio feed is going to sound like, the AT8202 gives you great control, to prevent clipping from the audio sent to you from the audio mixer. I use my 2 AT8202's with my Tricaster Studio, with excellent results.

    Not sure

    Bought it to use with the Zoom H4n, recommended in many forums to solve some issues with the recorder. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but it didn't work for me.Read complete review

    The thing looks sturdy and well-made, but if it works - no idea.

      Used to drop the output of the ISA One

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT8202 In-Line Attenuator:

      I have an ISA one connected to an RME babyface and wanted to be able to drive the thing harder. So this let's me drop the signal from the preamp with the RME set to -0 on the input. Works great. This thing isnt cheaply made, the switch is big, I have no complaints.

              This attenuator works as advertised. I use it for my Azden FMX-32 field mixer. The Left and Right output channels on my mixer come out really hot, so I use this to bring it down. The attenuator allows you to choose from -10db, -20db, and -30db.

                  I got this to use at events with my zoom h4n and it works fantastic. the signal coming into in from the many poorly setup soundboards is always super hot and this helps make it manageable. Highly recommended.

                      I am a drummer that uses a wired headset (Crown CM 311). The problem with headsets are that you can't back off of the mike for softer vocals. I attach the AT8202 to the output of the mike that is hooked on to my belt. When I sing lead, I set the attenuator to 10 db. When I go to background vocals I switch the attenuator to 20 or 30 dbs depending on the song and it allows me to sing at the volume that feels comfortable without my background vocal being to long in the mix.

                        This has consolidated a box of attenuators into one. Now we carry one and it handles 99% of what we run into. No more digging through a box looking for the right one, it's always there.
                        Worked right out of the box. Great idea.

                          Often times the output of my mic preamp is too hot for my AD converters. Placing the AT8202 after the pre and before the converter keeps the signal from overloading without effecting the sound. Also useful between the microphone and preamp when tracking very loud sources with sensitive mics.

                              Nice attenuator, works as expected, well-constructed. I needed it to drop a mixer's line level output for use feeding an Acoustic Image amplifier, which has no internal pad. The 800W AI is basically a high-quality guitar/bass amp, and would not normally be chosen for such applications, but in this case it happened to be my best PA choice, once I had an appropriate attenuator.

                                makes your +20db input a little more user freindly.

                                  Comes in handy when you don't know in advance what level audio source will be available to you.

                                      I just used it at a dance recital. The mic level is always hot from the sound board. The attenuator helped, but I probably needed one with a -50 which this one doesn't have. Good quality and reasonable price though.
