A totally passive level control can be built using a pair of Sowter attenuator transformers. You literally just put a pair in a box and wire them up with some i/o connectors, and the transformer tap wires to a pot.

Check out the Attenuators page at Sowter Transformers

There's a cool picture at the bottom.

Also, NHT Pro makes a cheap passive attenuator that sounded good when I heard it once in a very nice demo room.
