A Designs 503HR 500-Series Rack
The A Designs 503HR 500-Series Rack is a horizontal, three space, 1RU rack for the 500 Series crowd. Designed to accommodate the increasing need for Channel Strips in both recording and live application fields, the A Designs 503HR allows you to build your own channel strip in 500-Series format!
The A Designs 503HR 500-Series Rack is replacing the A-Designs 500HR two-slot, horizontal rack to accommodate the increasing need for Channel Strips in both recording and live application fields for performing artists that wish to adapt their sound for changing venues. This can be accomplished by using a simple insert of a different module (or two, or even three).
The A Designs 503HR has a robust external power supply with an LED display. This displays the amount of power being consumed or if the units in the A Designs 503HR are drawing too much power. But, the robust power supply can handle the demand. There is a 3-LED array on the face plate which displays the +16V, -16V and +48V.
The A Designs 503HR features all metal construction, XLR in and out, as well as a FEED switch on the front. This allows you to come into slot 1 and out slot 3. It also allows you to just feed 1 and 2 or none. The Feed switch is a 3-position switch used for: Slots 1 and 2 or Off or All. This reduces the need to use six (6) XLR cables for a channel strip. But, if you are inclined to do so, you still have that option.
When using the A Designs 503HR with the Feed switch, all that is needed are two (2) XLR cables - Male and Female. The input, as an example, would go to Slot 1 and the output to Slot 3, when the Feed switch is in the ALL position.
This is very useful for live applications. For example, you may only require the A Designs 503HR (with a 500 series Pre, Compressor, EQ), a power amp and a cabinet. Place the Feed switch to position All. The connections would be as follows: Assign the output of Slot 2 for FOH (Front of House) and the output of Slot 3 for your amp. Used as a Channel Strip for Bass or Guitar [Preamp, Compressor and EQ], your 500 series Pre-amp would go into the 500 series Compressor, Compressor out to the FOH and your 500 series EQ to your power amp then to your cabinet. This works extremely well.
