Control Freak has one big advantage: it's available in a balanced version. We recommend them all the time for people who want to run Gungnir output into monitors or directly into amps. Of course, the Control Freak is a single-input device.
I'll chime in for the Control Freak - it does work well and is very convenient with allowing passive volume control from the Mjolnir's balanced pre-outs to a pair of powered Airmotiv 4s monitors. Nice smooth rotation and has some heft to it. Plus, as quite a large, black volume control knob, it just looks cool sitting on my desk.Of note is the Control Freak is available in XLR and RCA variations.
