    DB14 Director Stereo Direct Box/Signal Separator is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geat attenuator I needed to use this attenuator to reduce the signal strength going from a new cd changer to a new analog (tube type) amplifier. It was half of the solution. Swapping out ECC83 preamp tubes with the mellower ECC82 tubes in the amp complete the change. The Rolls works perfectly and has the added benefit of providing separate strength (volume) controls for the left and right channels. The amp also has separate channel volume controls. The result is that I can leave the amp volume controls in about the 30-40% range and use the Rolls to control volume. Or I could do this the other way, leaving the Rolls set and using the amp volume controls. Either way, I get fantastic sound with no loss of sound quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nifty, Helpful Device Was looking for something to problem solve RCA line level problems. In working with our choir, I run a stand-alone CD player into a Roland keyboard amplifier that even has RCA inputs, but the level was too hot: I barely turned up the amplifier volume and there was too much sound. This device solved the problem. It works as a handy attenuator (whether or not stereo separation is what one is seeking), and it works as a channel separator too. I've used it with choral stereo split tracks (vocals on left channel, orchestral accompaniment on right). I can play a song for the group from the CD, using both channels, then drop out (or just lower, if we want) the vocal track as we learn to sing to the accompaniment. Practical, well-built product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from job well done works great and is much more cost effective than other brands. The stereo combining is neat, although i personally don.t need individual vol controls, it is handy.
