simplest way to reduce stereo headphone line volume

    I use the stereo headphone output on my digital piano to record straight to mp3 recorder. But the mp3 recorder has no level adjustment. So I need a go between box between the piano and the mp3 recorder, only to reduce volume, I don't need to amplify.

    Does such a device exist? Presumably it just needs to be a resistor, passive not active. Any tips? Thanks

    headphone output does not have a volume control knob?

    That is odd?

    a fast solution might be to use ear buds or headphones with a volume control built into the lead

    yes a resistive divider or stereo analog potentiometer is a solution
    but this will require soldering and instruction

    see above for the more simple solution

    Thanks. Yep, no volume control independent of line output. I live in UK - just seen that at maplin (our radioshack equiv) they have headphone extension cables with volume controls in em. That should do, but it's not very audiophile! Thanks

    Did someone say Audiophile? Where are they? I have this bridge I need to sell...
