NHT PVC PC
Our take on the NHT PVC PC by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Precise, convenient volume control for your system
Connect NHT's PVC PC rotary control between an audio source, such as a CD player, iPod®, or PC, and a pair of amplified speakers or power amp to precisely adjust the line-level signals and volume of your system. The PVC PC features both RCA and minijack headphone inputs and outputs for versatility.
What's in the Box:
- Passive volume control
- User Guide
- Product Registration Card
- adjusts the line-level signal going into a stereo amplifier or powered speakers, such as NHT's SuperPower desktop monitors
- infinitely variable attenuation for precise level adjustments
- stereo minijack (3.5mm) and female stereo RCA inputs/outputs
- Jensen transformers inside eliminate noise caused by PC sound cards, PC peripherals, and ground loops
- 5-1/2"W x 1-7/8"H x 6-1/4"D
- warranty: 1 year
- Our 60-day money-back guarantee
Passive Volume Control: The NHT PVC PC's single rotary control allows precise two-channel level adjustments within 1dB from 0 to -40dB (with ± .5dB inter-channel accuracy to -60 dB). The PVC PC is a passive attenuator and adds no gain to the circuit. When the PVC PC volume control is set to maximum, it outputs the same signal level that it is receiving.
Note: NHT recommends you set the volume control of your external audio source to full volume and then use the PVC PC to set your attenuation levels. This will give your audio system the lowest possible noise level.
Analog Inputs/Outputs: The NHT PVC PC features both RCA (stereo) and minijack (3.5mm) inputs and outputs. These connectors are wired in parallel, so that you can only use one type of input/output (RCA or minijack).
Note: No audio cables are included.
