Another attenuator to look at would be this one:

I use a Presonus Central Station and am pretty happy with it. The CS will do what you need and a lot more, but perhaps you just need a simple level control.

We sent our Trident's master section off for some rehab a while back, and being busy, we started mixing a project with a mackie inserted between PT and our Genelecs.  It seemed like we were adding highs to everything, and not in small amounts.  I tried routing the signal through the Mackie in a number of different ways, and they all sounded about the same.  Finally, we tried eliminating the Mackie and went straight from PT to the Genelecs.  Wow, was that ever a bright mix!  The final temporary fix was to use the CR in and out on the Digi Command 8.  I was definitely surprised that the Command 8 worked so much better than the Mackie.  The master section is back, and the mackie has returned to the rehearsal room, where I expect it will continue to work for many years to come.

How does the Prosonus Central Station stack up?
