Yeah, you can use Rockwell in-line 10 dB attenuators, if you think 10 dB is enough.

I have the Consonance CD 2.2 and the way it's designed, the volume control does not operate on the XLR side. It does work on the RCA (tube) side, though. Not sure if your's is the same.
That has been my only gripe with the player, as I wanted to plug straight into the power amp. I am now using a balanced preamp with it, and everything sounds great.
Dolfan, A couple of reasons actually, before I bought it, the reviews that I read said it sounded a little better XLR over RCA. Second, I use the same amp for 2 CH & Home Theater, so for connector ease, I use CD with the XLR inputs, and HT with the RCAs. I would have keep changing the RCAs. Also, now that I have heard the CD2.2 both ways, it's subtle but I think it's a little more dynamic sounding with the XLRs. Sonny
