  • 3 inputs: 1 x balan­ced XLR and 2 x unba­lan­ced RCA
  • All signal switching is carried out with ultra high-quality miniature signal relays
  • Adjustable gain for each input (indivi­dually adjus­table): 40 dB, 50 dB, 60 dB and 70 dB
  • Input impe­dance indivi­dually adjus­table for each input: 47, 100 , 220 , 470 , 1 k, 47 k and all values resulting from parallel connection.
  • Input capa­citance: basic capa­citance approx. <=100  pF, switch­able capaci­tances for unba­lanced inputs: 100 pF and 220 pF; Two capaci­tances can be switched on, resul­ting in three values (C1, C2, C1+C2)
  • Subsonic filter: -24 dB. Ope­rating frequency 20 Hz
  • 2 outputs: 1 x XLR and 1 x RCA, maxi­mum output voltage 8.5 V RMS switch­able as fixed output or as adjus­table output (volume control in 100 steps)
  • Built-in head­phone amplifier: maxi­mum output voltage 8.5 V RMS
  • Power supply unit: separate shunt power supply with 25 VA per channel and one sepa­rate power supply with 25 VA for the micro­pro­cessor control. Digital control galva­nically isola­ted from the analog power supply.
  • S/N: e.g. -73 dB at 60 dB ampli­fication
  • Frequency response: +-0.13 dB RIAA equa­lized
  • Distortion factor: 0.06 %
  • Crosstalk attenua­tion: better -90 dB due to double mono design
  • Weight: 34 kg
