Vancouver, BC (March 27, 2017)—Radial Engineering Ltd. is now shipping its LX-2 passive line splitter, allowing a single source to be available to two different destinations at once. Available for $219 street, the LX-2 offers a Jensen transformer and trim-controlled attenuation at the input signal, taming hot outputs from a mixing console or mic preamp.
The LX-2 features a XLR/TRS combo input jack for balanced or unbalanced line level signals to be split to two different destinations, eliminating hum and buzz from ground loops.
Ground lift switches on each of the LX-2’s XLR outputs further reduce ground loop noise. Trim control is activated by a recessed switch for live use; in situations where attenuation is not needed, it can be simply disengaged.
In typical Radial Engineering fashion, the LX-2 is built with 14-gauge steel, a book-end design to protect connections and switches, and a rigid I-beam construction to prevents torque from being applied to the circuit board.
Up to eight LX-2 units can be rack-mounted together using the Radial’s J-Rak ($119 street).
