ART S8 8-Channel Microphone Splitter

Double the signals of up to 8 low-impedance mics with this ART splitter. Each of its 8 channels has a direct input and a transformer-isolated output.
The ART S8 Microphone Splitter can be used to split eight balanced low impedance microphone signals into sixteen (eight pairs). Each channel of the S8 provides one direct output and one transformer-isolated output from a single microphone. Applications include sending the direct outputs to the main or Front-of-House mixer, and the second isolated outputs to a monitor or recording mixer. The direct outputs pass phantom power from the main mixer to the microphones for use with condenser microphones.

The S8 includes a ground-lift switch on each isolated output to reduce hum due to ground loops between connected AC-powered units. For versatility the S8 also features an attenuator pad switch on each input that can be used to connect preamplified signals to the two microphone-level outputs on each channel. Typical preamplified signals would originate from instrument preamplifiers, mixers, keyboards, etc.

"Excellent "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Purchased the mic splitter to seperate the stage monitors from the front of the house so that we could have control of the stage sound. Works fantastic, now we can set our own monitor mix independent from FOH. No more trying to get the sound guys attention to change something on the fly, thanks to the mic splitter we have our own mixer on the stage with us in parallel with the FOH mixer. Best stage sound we have ever had ! A great investment.
