Los Angeles, CA (September 30, 2016)—At the AES Convention, Radial Engineering has introduced its new LX2 passive line splitter and attenuator, which allows users to send a single source to two different destinations at once, with the ability to attenuate the input signal and tame hot outputs from a mixing console or mic preamp.
The input of the LX2 features an XLR/TRS combo jack, allowing connected balanced or unbalanced line level signals to be split to two different destinations. A Jensen transformer inside provides frequency response and phase coherency while isolating the two outputs from each other. Ground lift switches on each of the two XLR outputs help to further reduce ground loop noise.
For situations where a level adjustment is required, the trim control on the LX2 can be used to attenuate overly hot signals, thus allowing users to drive mic preamps hard to achieve coloration, while trimming the level at the LX2 to avoid clipping the inputs of a recording interface.
The LX2 is built with 14-gauge steel with a book-end design and I-beam construction. Pricing and release date on the LX2 are yet to be determined.
