Analogue and AES audio

The HG8/1 is an eight-input passive, balanced, stereo source-selector, housed in a 1U rackmount enclosure. A non-shorting “break-before-make” eight-position rotary switch selects the input. Eight LEDs identify the selected channel number, and designation-strips are provided for user identification of the sources. Input connection is by eight pairs of XLR 3-pin female connectors; output is a pair of XLR 3-pin male types. A 2.1mm socket provides DC power, which serves only to illuminate the LEDs. A suitable plug-in power supply is included.

Because of the passive nature of the unit, it can be used backwards (as a destination selector) equally well. Suitable for both analogue and digital audio. The ultimate! What more could you desire in life?
