If EVS attenuators are convenient enough for you, I don't think you can go wrong with them. On degrading the sound, I used to use a CAT SL-1 III with factory-simplified signal path, and it was SO much less transparent that a DIY passive using Shallco switches, Holco resistors and Stealth internal wire that I sold it, kept the passive, and have never looked back. Others would disagree, and there has been much discussion on this Forum, some of it even useful, going past a mere expression of preference. I'd do a search for it.
