Studiospares RED502 Bi-Directional Balancing Converter
The Studiospares RED502 Bi-Directional Balancing Converter is a single channel passive converter.
It is a bi-directional balanced to unbalanced or vice/versa converter that is manufactured from die-cast aluminium, which features the high specification build quality that the RED500 series is renowned for. With its metal endplates that have the connectors and switches mounted, this unit like the rest in the series is ready to withstand any recording situation it is thrown into, whether it be in the studio or out on the road.
Located on the right-hand side of the unit is 1x ¼ inch jack socket and 1x RCA phono socket that act as either inputs or outputs. The right-hand side also has an earth lift switch, useful for eliminating any unwanted noise or interference that may encounter while you are using the unit.
And on the left side, the RED502 features 1x male and 1x female XLR input/output connections. All inputs to outputs are fully isolated from each other via the built-in transformer, to ensure you the highest quality and the quietest of conversions whilst using the unit.
Being a passive unit the RED502 will require no power supply. Some applications that 502 could be used for would be sending the direct signal to front of house mixers, or other monitoring systems and even other recording systems.
