Silently interfacing -10dB unbalanced consumer electronics with +4 dB Balanced professional equipment has always been a problem. Hum and noise generated by a mismatch at this point will be amplified throughout the studio, broadcast or live sound system. But luckily it's a problem of the past, now that ARX has introduced the Balance 8, an 8 channel audio balancer and level optimizer specifically designed to handle this critical task.

ARX's proprietary balancing circuits take the -10dB levels from CD players, cassette and tape players, DAT recorders, digital 8 track recorders, and effortlessly transform them into the balanced signals that all professional audio systems expect. Inputs are unbalanced RCA connectors, and outputs are industry standard balanced 3 pin XLR type. Pairs of Gain Mode switches on the front panel let you select unity gain through the Balance 8, using it as a balancer only, or as a level optimizer as well, bringing the -10 dB levels up to +4 dB (14dB overall gain). Status LED's on the front panel indicate which mode has been selected.

Housed in a rugged all steel chassis with extruded aluminum front panel, the ARX Balance 8 is the ideal professional engineer's tool for the critical task of impedance and level converting. Every day, ARX Audio interface products solve audio problems for thousands of people around the world. We know we're obsessive about audio quality, but we're betting that you are, too.
