The Signature ADA 2:6 models are broadcast specification, six-way, stereo/mono, analogue, distribution amplifiers, designed to distribute audio to multiple destinations.
They have one stereo analogue input, which is distributed to 6 x stereo analogue outputs. A toggle switch on the front panel changes the operation of the unit to a mono distribution amplifier, with one input and twelve outputs. The switch is recessed to prevent accidental operation and also provides the user with clear visual indication of the current mode. An LED indicates that the unit is operational.
Glensound's Signature Series have internal power supplies as standard, in addition every unit, other than the PS1 power supply, has an external 12V DC input which may be used used as a primary power source, or for backup when connected to an optional Signature PS1 power station. The Signature case is in rack-mounting format, 1U high, and has extruded sides to which rack 'ears' are attached. These may be removed and fixed to the rear of the unit if desired. The extrusion has 'wings' at the side which may be used to mount the case to a flat surface.
The rear panel has two female three-pin XLR connectors for audio inputs and twelve male three-pin XLR connectors for audio outputs. All audio inputs and outputs are electronically balanced and can accommodate unbalanced connections if required. All outputs are protected, so a short circuit on one output will not affect any of the others. A 4-pin male type provides the +/-12v DC power input. AC power is connected by an IEC inlet. If the power fails, the primary input switches directly to the outputs via bypass relays
Inputs: +28dB maximum. Distortion: 0.013%THD at 100Hz, 1kHz and 10kHz, referred to +8dBu output. Noise: -89dB RMS at 'line up', unweighted, 22Hz to 22kHz. Outputs: +24dB maximum. Power source: 100-240V AC, 2.8watts at 230V AC. Dimension: 445 x 123 x 44(l x d x h) mm without rack ears; 482 x 123 x 44(l x d x h)mm with rack ears. Weight: 1.16kg.
Included accessories: Power cable, with UK 13A connector. 4x rack screws.
Optional accessories: Signature PS1 redundant power supply, see GLENSOUND POWER SUPPLIES - Signature Series.
Input gain controls are provided for both left and right inputs, with a range from -10dB to +20dB. These gain controls are accessed from the front panel and are multi-turn preset controls, recessed to prevent accidental operation).
Instead of input gain controls, this model has separate level controls, with a range of -10db to +15dB, for each of the twelve outputs. These gain controls are accessed from the front panel and are multi turn preset controls, recessed to prevent accidental operation.
