Tascam's update to their popular line amplifiers results in the LA-40MkIII, LA-80MkII and LA-81MkII. The new models include a 12dB trim control for better matching of levels between components. A signal present LED proves useful during system design and troubleshooting. The LA-80MkII is an 8 channel unbalanced to balanced line amplifier, where the LA- 81MkII converts 8 channels of balanced to unbalanced audio. The LA-40MkIII has 4 channels of unbalanced to balanced and another 4 channels of balanced to unbalanced out. These interfaces are packaged in black rack cases with standard chassis depth for easier wiring. All of this is offered for a lower price than ever before.
