Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface

The Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface is a clean and reliable solution for bidirectional level and impedance matching and ensures a reliable two-way buffer so both systems can operate at maximum performance levels.

The Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface is a two channel audio level interface, the industry standard for interconnecting consumer and pro level stereo audio equipment. The Aphex 124B Audio Level Interface is designed to allow use of -10dBV consumer hi-fi equipment with +4 or +8dBm professional, industrial, and broadcast audio systems.

The Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface offers two-way buffer so consumer and pro systems can operate properly. Acts as a signal splitter, the Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface provides two high quality balanced outs from an unbalanced "Y" connector. It provides an extremely clean, reliable two-way buffer so both systems can operate at maximum performance levels, matching impedances and operating levels.

Input

Servo-balancing means that high common mode voltages, such as induced hum from a nearby AC line, are compensated for to preserve headroom. The input impedance of 100K Ohms allows bridging over a 600 Ohm balanced or unbalanced line with negligible loading effects. Front panel switchable 600 Ohm load allows for input line termination when required.

Outputs

Servo-balancing allows the outputs to be used balanced or unbalanced (single-ended) at any time by simply grounding either unused pin. The servo compensates for the voltage loss on one side so there is no 6dB loss of level. The outputs are also protected against short-circuits, so nothing is damaged if the wrong pins are grounded. A front panel indicator will flash red when the balanced output level is 5dB below clipping.

Applications

Two-way interface amplifier for connecting any unbalanced device such as a cassette deck, equalizer, CD player or DAT deck to the IHF inputs and outputs. The balanced inputs and outputs go to a studio console, patchbay or other line level equipment. The different gains and impedances are matched for optimal performance.

Line Driver

The servo-balanced input and output stages of the 124 can be used as a very effective line driver for long lines. The output stage provides a short-circuit proof, low impedance source that will be relatively unaffected by the impedance of the cable. Gain may even be taken to boost signal level. In this application, either the unbalanced IHF or balanced high level inputs may be used. For the latter, the IHF inputs and outputs are simply jumpered.

Signal Splitter

The Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface may be used to provide two high quality balanced outputs from a single unbalanced mono signal. A "Y" connector is used to split the incoming signal to each of the IHF unbalanced inputs.

Rackmount Kit

The Rackmount kit allows for the rack mounting of one or two Aphex 124B Level Matching Interfaces in one rack space. The new front panel design of the Aphex 124B Level Matching Interface and the new rack mount kit design makes installation 100% faster!
