About the DI6sIt's a fact of audio life that a lot of equipment that has to be connected to professional audio systems isn't impedance or level compatible.Interfaces UnlimitedTape/cassette/DVD/CD decks, audio for video, drum machines, synthesizers, bass guitars, computers; at some stage all these need linking up to Balanced inputs, whether the application is Live sound, Studio or Broadcast.To solve these problems, we've developed the DI-6s:
Six active D.I. (Direct Injection) boxes, plus a 6 into 1 Line Mixer, plus a 1 to 6 Splitter, All of this in a compact, all steel 1 RU package.
A Pro Audio ToolboxThis unique and flexible audio toolbox allows Six independent unbalanced audio sources to easily and quietly interface with Balanced pro audio systems, either to individual channels or summed down to one Master output.But that's not all. By pressing a single switch on the rear panel the DI6s will change from being Direct Boxes and a Mixer to being a 6 way Splitter (line distribution amplifier). Now it will split an incoming signal to 6 individual outputs or zones.On the front panel, each channel has 2 IN/OUT jacks, a level control from infinity (off) through 0dB to +15dB gain, and a Clip indicator LED.The Master section has a Master volume control and status LEDs indicating whether the unit is in DI or Splitter mode. In addition, as on all ARX single rack unit equipment, each channel has a numbered marker panel ('scribble strip') you can write on for easy confirmation of channel assigns.Balanced OutputsOn the rear, each channel has an XLR Balanced output, with associated Ground lift switch and status LED, to isolate the chassis and electronic grounds.The Master section has both Balanced XLR and Unbalanced Jack outputs. In addition there is a Balanced XLR input with a switch to put the unit in either DI or Splitter mode.Universal AC PowerAC power range is a universal 100 to 120V or 220 to 240V AC, and is connected to the unit via a removable power lead and standard 3 pin IEC connector, with built-in fuse and voltage change switch.With so many handy functions, plus a true 'user friendly' layout, it's no wonder people call the DI-6s 'A total Audio Patching System in 1 RU!'You'll never compromise on Quality when you choose ARX
