Studiospares RED505 Line Splitter
The Studiospares RED505 is a professional quality standalone line splitter.
The RED505 like the rest of the RED500 series features the same famous high-quality build specification. The RED505 is manufactured from die-cast aluminium, with metal endplates that the sockets and switches are mounted to. Meaning that the RED505 will survive under the heaviest of hands while in any recording studio or a live touring scenario. The S505 applications can include live recording or broadcasting, press conferences and on-stage monitoring for example.
Located on the right-hand side of the unit is 1x female XLR input socket. The input circuit is line level and can also be used as an isolation transformer for long audio lines feeding. In addition to the right side, there is 1x male XLR direct output, so the unit can be included in any circuit without losing the signal path. Fundamentally this means you can keep the original signal path while splitting the signal.
Meanwhile, on the left-hand side, the RED505 features 2x male XLR outputs that are transformer coupled. In addition, the left side features 2x ground lift switches that will help combat ground loops and keep any interference or other noise to an absolute minimum while the unit converts the signal.
Lastly, all inputs and outputs are fully isolated from each other via the built-in transformer, to minimise interferences from SCR lighting dimmers, radio transmitters and even AC power wiring for example. Ultimately ensuring the quietest and highest quality conversions are present when using this unit.
No power supply will be necessary as the unit is passive.
