ART S8-3 Microphone Splitter

The ART S8-3 Microphone Splitter is an eight channel three way microphone splitter designed for live sound, recording and broadcast applications where microphone and XLR balanced line level input signals have to go to multiple mix locations.

The ART S8-3 Microphone Splitter's 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 ART ?S8-3WAY? 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 S8-3 Microphone Splitter 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.

    Love Doing The Splits!

    I now have five of these units to cover one large (or two smaller) recording rigs used for music festivals and individual band gigs. Having that extra split comes in very handy if a PA system that I patch into uses an onstage monitor desk. They do what's on the box... SPLIT! Clean and without fuss! Highly recommended

    could be better.

    1st day of use all 8 channels worked great. next session channels 1 & 2 would not co-operate at all for the only 2 mic's that need phantom power. gonna send it back and try again.
