BSS AR-416 Four Channel Active DI Box

BSS AE-416 Four Channel Active DI Box rental from Studiocare Professional Audio.

BSS AR-416 is mains powered and takes 1U of rackspace. the AR-416 chassis is cleverly designed to have rack ears fitted either on the ‘jackside‘ or the ’XLR-side’ (or both). The mains cable exits through the side of the case.

For the road, the four active DI outputs with Filter, Polarity and Earth-lift switching are made available to PA crew on the outside of the artist’s equipment rack whilst inside, jack leads can be permanently connected between samplers, voice modules, effects etc and the rear jack-side of the unit.

The input attenuator is left preset safe inside the rack, a feature of benefit to Front-of- house and Monitor engineers alike.

Separate parallel and buffered Link outputs are available independently for feeding backline and/or a submixer mounted in the top of the rack. Stereo to mono summing is also possible using these outputs.

Inthe studio, the AR-416 rackmounts in keyboard tables or equipment racks to give 1/4" jack Inputs, Link outputs and Earth-lift switching accessible from the front for guitars, keyboards and samplers etc. The active DI output XLR’s inside the rack can be permanently plugged onto tielines wired to the console patchbay.

In mobile OB or ENG situations, the unit is invaluable as a general purpose impedance matcher or floating isolation buffer for high level audio signals.
