The Signature ADA 1:8G is a broadcast specification 8 way mono analogue distribution amplifier, designed to distribute a single audio channel to multiple destinations.
The ADA 1:8G has 1 x single channel input that is distributed to 8 x mono outputs, each with its own gain control.
The audio input and outputs are electronically balanced on XLRs and can accommodate unbalanced connections if required. The output gains are on front panel multi turn potentiometers (recessed to prevent accidental operation). They provide a wide gain range to cope with the different gain level requirements of broadcast or domestic level equipment.
All outputs are protected, so a short circuit on one will not affect any of the others.
Power is provided by an internal switch mode power supply, with a wide input range. There is also an input for external 12v DC power. The 12v DC input can be connected to the optional Signature PS1external DC Master Power Station, for situations where a redundant power supply is desirable.
A bright front panel LED indicates that the unit is operational.
