XTA Electronics DS800017 April 2012
What is it? A mic/line distribution system for both live sound and broadcast applications. Details A re-designed version of XTA’s well-established DS800 model, the rack-mounting DS8000 is an 8-input to 32-output mic/line distribution system incorporating 16 transformer-balanced isolated outputs and 16 electronically-balanced outputs as standard. In addition to a new Outside Broadcast split function, the DS8000 also incorporates a new dual redundant power supply to support paired units plus a remote-controlled 48V phantom power with lockout ‘safe’ functions to prevent tampering. In addition, subtle panel lighting is provided for dark back stage environments and there’s the option of adding an ADC card incorporating AES3 outputs for integration into digital systems. And another thing… Input transformers are also available for the DS8000, together with the option of replacing its electronically-balanced outputs with transformer outputs.
