The simplest ideas are usually the best! ARX's new Remote Selector is a stereo out signal selector for the extremely popular Audibox range.
The new Remote Selector silently switches a stereo pair of XLR female input connectors to either A or B pairs of male XLR outputs
ARX ‘SoftSwitch’ technology achieves this with no loud bangs through the audio system when switching.
Output Channel control can be selected in 2 ways:
Mode 1 by remote switch / relay closure (using an external power pack / wall wart), or
Mode 2 by 12 - 24VDC
With no DC voltage applied, Output A, the default normal audio signal, is selected.
When +12 – 24VDC is applied to Pins 3 and 4 on the Dinkle type connector, then Output B is selected.
Typical applications include remote controlled zoning, loudspeaker selection, and A-B comparison of audio units.
Another useful application is remotely switching between 2 bands, or Live Band and DJ when both are using different Speaker system.
Note - Connectors are inserted in the top of the unit. Please allow adequate space above the Remote Selector to allow for the connectors to be removed or inserted.
