Sescom just launched two DSLR attenuating line (with 43dB Pad) to mic level cables that provide properly matched mic level signals.
Sescom SES-43DB cables, featuring two conductor shielded cable, reduce professional two-volt line level audio signals from sources such as mixers, tape recorders and CD players by 43dB to an unbalanced DSLR microphone level input. Available in two models, with RCA male plugs or with XLR female plugs, both models are also terminated with a 3.5-millimeter stereo plug. The cable features Canare two-conductor shielded cable assembled with a slim profile Switchcraft TRS 3.5-mm stereo plug and two Rean RCA male plugs. Inside the Sescom SES-43DB-MZ2P is where the magic happens as Sescom’s exclusive circuitry on both audio channels reduces professional two-volt line level audio signals by 43dB to match the “sweet spot” of an unbalanced microphone level input. Its sleek low profile design avoids clunky XLR type attenuators that can produce heavy strain on the cameras mic input connector.
These are worth $39.
