The ETS Digital Audio Adapter (PA850 Series) is impedance-matched, balanced, and isolated to provide excellent performance sending AES/EBU signals over Category 5 or better Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) wiring. Testing has shown the signal performance over UTP is equal to that of 110 ohm single Shielded Twisted Pair wire even at the highest bit rates.
Experiments with High Performance Category5 cable have shown that Digital Audio signal performance over UTP is equal to that of 110-ohm Shielded Twisted Pair wire, even at the highest bit rates.
The ETS exclusive balun design balances and isolates the signal, eliminating unwanted jitter. The careful impedance-matching prevents reflections that can degrade signal reception and decoding.
Used by engineers and technicians in broadcast rooms, recording studios, and post-production facilities, you will find these adapters economical, reliable, as well as indispensable.
