  • Overview

    The Audio-Technica AT8202 Adjustable In-line Attenuator is designed to prevent balanced low-impedance microphones from overloading electronics having low- to mid-impedance inputs in high-SPL applications. The adjustable attenuator is designed to assure the proper match of the microphone to the inputs of mixing consoles and portable recording devices without experiencing input overload of the electronics due to high-level signals. The AT8202 is compatible for use in phantom power applications.

    • Q:

      Can this be used to attenuate line level signals? don't need it to attenuate line to mic level, just to knock down the level at line level @15 to 20 dB?

        A:

        The Audio-Technica AT8202 adjustable in-line attenuator is used to
        prevent balanced low-impedance microphones from overloading
        electronics having low- to mid-impedance inputs in high-SPL applications.
        The adjustable attenuator is designed to assure the proper match of the
        microphone to inputs of mixing consoles and portable recording devices
        without experiencing input overload of the electronics due to high-level
        signals. The AT8202 is compatible for use in phantom power applications.

        Therefore, it cannot be used with line-level signals. You might want to look into a line-level attenuator/pad. Also, some Direct Injection (DI) Boxes have a built-in attenuator/pad as well.

    • Q:

      two questions:
      1. can the setting be switched live w/o noise when switching?
      2. is there a 'zero' setting, i.e., no attenuation w/o unplugging?

      Thank you.

        A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it can be switched live. There may be some mechanical noise when the switch is flipped, but no electronic "pop". There is no zero setting.
