New York, NY (November 3, 2015)—At AES, Jensen Transformers unveiled four new direct boxes for live stage, house of worship and multimedia use—the Concert-1 and Concert-2 for instruments and the Media-1 and Media-2 for consumer audio sources.
The Concert-1 and Concert-2 are direct boxes aimed at interfacing musical instruments such as acoustic guitar, bass and keyboards with the PA system. The Concert-1 is a single channel direct box with standard ?-inch input and throughput. Inside, a Jensen JT-DB-EPC transformer performs the balancing and lowers the impedance to provide signal transfer from the instrument to the PA's mic input. A 3.5 mm TRS connector enables users to connect a laptop computer to the Concert-1 and the signal is summed to mono by dressing the selector switch. This also turns the input and thru into left and right ?-inch jacks for stereo to mono conversion when used with a keyboard. The Concert-2 is a stereo version that retains stereo functionality at all times.
The Media-1 and Media-2 direct boxes are similar in that they, too, are equipped with Jensen JT-DB-EPC transformers, but each is also equipped with a variable pad that enables the user to adjust the input level to enable all types of media sources such as laptops, tablets, video players and DJ mixers to be connected while allowing the user to set the signal level on the fly. The Media-1 is a single-channel device that automatically mixes the stereo source to mono.
