Art Audio has a volume control option on their Vinyl One. You could always wire in an attenuator on most any phonostage. Or use something minimalist like the EVS attenuators.

The Manley Steelhead has a volume control. Lotsa reviewers like it, but it's not cheap. I use one for my phono, and I also put my digital source through its line input using single ended connections. (The digital source also goes direct to my line preamp via balanced connections, allowing a quick A-B with and without the Steelhead in the signal path.) Sounds great.
hello, i am using a aiwa plug-in phono turntable from the past decade and am plugging it into my late 70s stereo system that has phono/aux outlet. it appears that now my left hand side phono jack outlet on the stereo system is 'dead' and i am only hearing half the sound from the turntable. when i turn the stereo on to am/fm it sounds much louder. there is no grounder from the aiwa--just two plug-in phono jacks. is there a way i could get a phono pre-amp with volume control that would compensate for the loss--one that would be able to plug into the jack. i love this old stereo. i have a good system with a couple of extra speakers around the room and it has a full sound. i just don't want to let it go.
but maybe that is the case.
