Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

Volume control for 8020

Volume control for 8020

Dear all,

Do you have any volume control recommendations for controlling a pair of 8020's. They are connected to a DAC with a fixed balanced XLR output. The 8020's offer volume control on the front but it's not very practical to use that throughout the day.

I'm looking into the usual suspects like TC Level Pilot, Palmer Monicon, SM Pro Audio Patch Plus etc. A 9000A would be painful as I would go back to unbalanced lines then.

Was wondering if any of you have any experiences with these passive controllers or if another solution would be better?
