Colin Wonfor’s Clinic: XLR attenuator values

Colin Wonfor

Dear Colin, XLR attenuator values. There is to much gain in my system; DAC outputs 4vrms and amps output full power at 1.6v. What are the correct value attenuators please? Cheers Chris

Hi Chris,

1)what impedance are we driving into?
2)what output can the DAC be loaded into?

I am going to assume 600 Ohms. This should work fine, OK the loading is higher.
