I've used a mosfet solid state relay for muting with good results. I 
couldn't tell you which one I used until I get back to work next week 
but I think it may be this one...

You'll probably need a double shunt configuration to get the attenuation 
you want. I had no problem with pops, unlike when I've used jfets and 
had to slow down the gate drive. If I have to do it again I'll be using 
the SSR's. (it may not be device linked to above though)
