Hi everyone! Setting up studio monitors - Need help! Mixers (Analog)

Hi everyone! Setting up studio monitors - Need help!

Hi everyone, im new to the forum.

After some searching, I found I would like to simply ask a few questions here and get up to date answers. I would like to purchase a pair of Rokit 6's G2 for my computer setup. I will use them for music and occasional watching of movies. I really have my heart set on the 6's so i'm not really here to get suggestions to replace them.

I am here to ask what should I do for a pre-amp? I do not have a mixer. These speakers will be connected to my desktop computer which I have upgraded the sound card in. What is a cost effective preamp (or other method if possible) to get an extra gain knob for these speakers. You need this correct? I am looking for something VERY basic and cost effective. I found a pair of new Rokit rp6 G2 for $299. I think its a deal I cannot pass up but before I buy them I need to know what else I will need.

Thanks everyone!

Tc level pilot, sm pro nano patch. You just need a passive attenuator, not a preamp.

A-designs ATTY should do the trick too.

Thanks for the fast response! Ive looked at those devices you listed, and they are around $75-$100 but they are very basic. Can I just use a basic mixer to achieve the needed extra gain knob? I can get a few extra bells and whistles for the same price I found this one:
