The RB-SM1 converts a stereo input to a fully buffered and balanced mono line output, e.g. to supply cue in broadcast environments or to feed a mono PA system.
The connections, which are on the rear panel, are of an XLR-3 type. The input is electronically balanced with an impedance of 20kO bridging. This can be wired unbalanced to accept an output from domestic equipment.
The output is electronically balanced with an output impedance of <50O. The output can be wired unbalanced by grounding the non-phase signal, allowing you to feed both balanced and unbalanced equipment.
Output gain adjustment using a pre-set potentiometer for the converter allows a normalised mono output from domestic stereo equipment. This potentiometer is accessible through the rear panel.
