Even in this digital age, we’ve kept sight of the numerous applications where analogue devices provide the best solution. One such application is providing multiple feeds from a single source, hence the introduction of the DN1248 Plus Active Signal Splitter.
Housed in a roadworthy 3RU chassis with internal power supply, a single DN1248 Plus provides twelve input channels, each feeding four outputs, two of which are electronically balanced and two which are transformer isolated.
On the rear of the unit can be found output 4, plus duplicates of all the inputs and output 1, so the patching options are extremely flexible. The microphone preamplifier is a MIDAS Heritage series unit, specially adapted to the task and providing all the great sound and headroom for which MIDAS preamps are world famous.
Several factory options are available for DN1248 Plus: the ‘DP’ option, which provides (at very low cost) a second, linked internal PSU to provide auto-backup in the case of PSU failure.
The ‘AT’ option provides transformer balancing for all 48 outputs, and the ‘FM’ variant combines both ‘DP’ and ‘AT’ advantages. Plus, the whole unit is designed so that a customer can easily retrofit the multipin connector and input / output configuration of their choice.
