ART AV Direct Audio/Video Direct Box
The AV Direct lets you connect stereo iPods, laptop computers, consumer DVD players, consumer HiFi equipment or video machines to a single XLR microphone level input. It can accept virtually any input connection and output level (including amplified speaker outputs).
The AV Direct has stereo RCA, 1/8 and 1/4 TRS line level inputs, as well as a 1/4” and bare-wire pressure clip speaker-level inputs. A switchable 4.8 kHz high cut filter, ground lift and variable level control allow the AV Direct to effectively filter out any extraneous unwanted noise while offering variable volume control at source.
The speaker level inputs are heavily padded and transformer isolated from the XLR output, allowing amplified speaker level (up to 100 watts @ 8 ohms) to be tapped off, and sent to a microphone level input. A 20 Hz-20 kHz frequency response ensures the AV Direct will function seamlessly with any high quality audio source.
