Does its job well
Heeplv, 05.05.2021
So, this is the simple device, which is conceived to do the simple job - adjust the volume of active speakers. The box is sturdy, everything looks good and reliable. I also noticed no sound coloration or any other issues.

Pros
TRS outputs - I like them, because my both audio interfaced has the same, and thus, when changind setup I can reuse my cables+connectors.
Sturdyness and simplicity
Hybrid inputs (TRS/XLR) - great universal solution.
I like the design as well. Also, would appreciate a white/silver version.

Cons
Well, actually nothing, except the volume knob is a bit too firm while adjusting.

Solid basic performer
marzipanda, 12.02.2021
I'm really impressed with this passive controller. The build quality is excellent, it feels sturdy, and it doesn't introduce any noise or distortion that I can discern. The gain knob feels smooth and even across its entire range, and the switches don't add any pops when toggled.

I paired this unit with M-Audio BX5's which have inaccessible volume controls on the rear, and a Zoom H6 which acts as my audio interface, neither of which gave me the instant control I needed. Its a really well put together basic unit if like me you didn't need anything fancy, and the price really reflects this.

The only minor grievance I have is that the indicator on the main control knob is on the side - and because the unit is slightly sloped it is often difficult to determine its position from the 9 to 3 o'clock position. I remedied this by simply adding a mark to the top of the knob so I could see it in all positions.

Lautstärkeregler in solidem Gehäuse
Felix8139, 03.11.2020
Lautstärkeregler in solidem Gehäuse - was kann da schief gehen?

Schlechter Poti? - nicht auffällig schlecht.
Klangverfärbung? - nicht auffällig schlecht.
Schlechte Optik auf dem Desk? - Geschmacksache, aber wer eckig nicht mag, der kauft das selbe Gerät in "rund" von Behringer.
Schlechte Haptik des Reglers? - Fehlanzeige. Schöner Widerstand.
Gehäuse aus billigem Plastik? - nein! Solides Metall! Super.

Falsche Anschlussbuchsen für den jeweiligen Zweck? - Und dies ist mein persönliches Problem mit dem Gerät:

Eingänge: Mini TRS & XLR/TRS Kombi-Buchse. TOP!!!
Ausgänge: Mini TRS ? NUR TRS?! Warum bloß? - FAIL.

Hätte das Gerät auch noch symmetrische TRS/XLR Kombibuchsen am Ausgang, wäre es top.. so ist leider WIEDER ein Adapterkabel für die Weitergabe des Signals an XLR Eingänge boxenseitig von Nöten. Wieder eine Schwachstelle in der Übertragung, wieder ein zusätzliches Kabel bzw. Adapter.

Vielleicht wird dieses Manko in V2 zukünftig behoben - dann hätte ich diverse Anwendungen hierfür:
Unter anderem als manueller Safety Knob hinter digitalen Minimixern wie Xair18 etc., denen ein Hardware Master in Notfallsituationen fehlt. Man könnte sich diese Kiste hinter den Main out und jeweils eine hinter die AUX Wege zu Monitoren legen. Per XLR vom Mixer zum Monitor und neben dem Monitor die t.mix Kiste auf den Boden. So kann der jeweilige Musiker ohne hinter die aktiven Boxen zu kriechen die Lautstärke von da, wo er sie hört, auf das maximal notwendige Level herunter regeln. Sehr praktisch - und für knapp über 30 Euro - eine Investition, die Spaß machen kann.

Un controleur pas pour le mix
Ted from Paris, 16.04.2021
J'avais besoin d'un controleur de monitoring en sortie de mon Apollo 8x afin d'éviter d'avoir à tourner l'encodeur en permanence. Je voulais juste un controleur qui fasse "le job" comme on dit. Il est très bien construit, très solide, les switchs et le potentiomètre de volume sont très agréables mais...Impossible de mixer à faible volume, le son commence à droite puis l'image stéréo se rétablie seulement quand on l'augmente. J'ai essayé différents réglages en sortie de ma carte son 0db, -12db, en mono etc ... le problème est bien là. Dommage, le son est bon par contre. Ha oui et réglé au minimum, on a quand même du son qui sort des moniteurs !
