The ETS InstaSnake PA204M is a passive network audio snake featuring two male XLR sends, two female XLR returns, and one RJ45 ethernet jack. The PA204M allows you to run audio signals over a single run of CAT5, 5e, 6 or 6a data cables.
The passive InstaSnake doesn't need power, and it accepts mic or line level analog or digital audio, supports phantom power when using shielded CAT5 or 6 cables. The unit also features bi-directional capability which can input directly into analog or digital consoles.
Designed to the highest professional standards, the InstaSnake PA204M has a wide, flat frequency response, low THD and residual noise. The InstaSnake has been factory tested to 1900 feet over CAT5 using balanced line low impedance dynamic microphones, and phantom power has been tested to 850 feet over shielded cable, which is required to pass phantom power.
