The AES DA 2×4, eight output two-input AES/EBU distribution amplifier is ideal for distributing AES/EBU signals or word clock at sample rates of up to 96kHz. It can be configured for 2×4 operation, acting as two separate one input, four output DAs, or for 1×8 operation acting as a one input eight output DA. The system’s two transformer isolated inputs use StudioHub+ compatible RJ45 jacks for balanced AES/EBU signals. The selected input is distributed transformer isolated AES/EBU outputs with StudioHub+ compatible RJ45 jacks. Internal AES/EBU activity detectors provide local and remote signal monitoring for both inputs via front panel LED indicators and SPDT alarm relays. The alarm relay contacts are available on rear panel plug-in euro-block connectors. The AES DA 2×4 is powered by a surge protected internal power supply. A 9 volt DC universal switching power supply with domestic AC connector is included. International AC connectors are optional. The compact 1/3 rack form-factor allows the unit to be set on a desktop, mounted on a wall, or three units may be rack mounted using the RA-1, Rack-Able mounting shelf.
