The Pro Co iFace Portable Audio Player Interface is a roadworthy aluminumhoused device that allows simple and reliable connection of stereo -10dBVaudio devices such as MP3 players, Apple iPods, laptop computers and consumer-type CD and DVD players to the balanced microphone inputs ofprofessional audio mixing consoles.
The iFace provides both a 3.5 mm (1/8") and recessed left/right RCA inputs for easy connection with standard patch cable s and a stereo/mono switch to provide passive summing to a dual mono feed where required.
The outputs are isolated via audio phile-grade Pro Co MBT-1 Microphone Bridging Transformers and appear on standard 3-pin XLR male connectors. The transformers offer widebandwidth and low distortion and phase shift, and are magnetically shielded in mu-metal cans and electrostatically isolated with dual Faraday shields. The result is near-ideal rejection of commonmode signals from all sources of RFI and EMI, including radio pickup, SCR dimmers and 60 Hz hum.
The ruggedly constructed "Uni-Box" enclosure is formed of extruded aluminum side channels and 16-gauge steel top, bottom and endplates, designed to protect switches and connectors from accidental damage while also providing magnetic shielding for the circuitry. Industrialgradeconnectors and switches provide trouble-free reliability even in abusive situations such as remote broadcast and recording operations.
