Product Description

The S83WAY eight channel three way microphone splitter is ideal for live sound, recording and broadcast applications where microphone and XLR balanced line level input signals have to go to multiple mix locations.

Each channel provides one XLR input, one XLR direct output with two additional transformer isolated XLR outputs for a total of 3 balanced outputs from each single microphone input signal.

Typical uses would include sending 8 direct signals through the S83WAY to a main Front-of-house mixer, with additional feeds going to a monitor mix station while transformer balanced isolated feeds are sent to remote recording desk or used for a broadcast feed.

The ART S83WAY features the same high-quality musical sounding transformers used in the popular ART S8, and is housed in a standard 1U space rack-mountable steel chassis designed for years of reliable operation.

Features

- High quality passive interface

- One direct and two transformer isolated output per channel
- Balanced XLR input and 3 balanced XLR per channel
- Extremely wide frequency response
- Extremely low voltage insertion loss
- Reversible rack ears for added system flexibility

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Product At A GREAT Price!"
Sound: I bought 4 of these units which provide me 32 channels of transformer-isolated "splits" for my mobile multi-track recording rig. The improvement in my recordings is incredible- the sound quality of these inexpensive splitters is quite good, but the greatest benefit is NOT having to use the direct outs of the FOH console (which are POST-fader, and pass ALL of the FOH GUYS MIX AND INSERTS). I'm very pleased with this product! Feature: I was originally considering the "2-way" version of this ART product. But for a few bucks more, I chose to buy these splitters which have TWO transformer-isolated splits per channel. As my equipment grows, I plan to use the second set of splits tot feed a redundant recording rig. And in the meantime I have already used them to feed the monitor system for a couple of larger shows. Ease of Use: Gave this category a "9" for one little reason, and that is simply due to the fact that the inputs and direct-outs are both located on the front of the unit. Not a HUGE problem, but it does make for a "cluttered workspace" when I patch my split rack into the stage box, and the FOH guy has to patch his mic cables into my rack. The "fix" I'm putting together- a 32 channel stage box on a short snake, so the FOH guy has a "clean" panel tot work with... Quality: Bought 4 units (totaling 32 channels) and four 8-channel xlr snakes, installed them in my rack, and have not had any problems whatsoever. Clean, clear splits feed my recording rig, and I'm a happy camper! Value: I am very happy, and would certainly buy these again if I was starting over. Perhaps one day, when I'm running high-end "boutique" pre-amps on every channel, I might find a flaw in these... but I can't hear anything"cheap" about them now! Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed it... Overall: My only comment that is even remotely close to being anything less than "a perfect 10" is pertaining to the layout- having the front panel cluttered with the direct-outs- but I knew this going in and chose to deal with it. After all, if that were a "must have", I'd have bought their "2-way splitter" as I was originally planning. I went with these for the ADDED BENEFIT of having TWO transformer-isolated splits per channel, PACKED INTO A SINGLE RACK SPACE! If "clutter" around your input jacks is a concern, buy the 2-way with both of the outputs on the rear, or do what I'm doing and add a breakout panel in a stage box.
Style of Music: Recording LIVE music in a mobile multi-track pro tools rig.
