Radial Engineering LX-2Radial Engineering has launched the LX-2 passive line splitter, allowing a single source to be sent to two destinations at once without noise, and with the ability to attenuate the input signal and tame hot outputs from a mixing console or mic preamp.

The input of the LX-2 features an XLR/TRS combination jack for connection of balanced or unbalanced line-level signals. A premium Jensen transformer provides exceptional frequency response and phase coherency to ensure that the highest audio quality is maintained, while isolating the two outputs from each other to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops. Ground lift switches on each of the two XLR outputs help to further reduce ground loop noise.

For situations where a level adjustment is required, the trim control on the LX-2 permits attenuation of overly hot signals so that mic preamps can be driven hard to achieve colouration, while the level at the LX-2 avoids clipping the input of a recording interface. This trim control is activated by a recessed ‘set-and-forget’ switch for live use or, in situations where attenuation is not needed, the switch can be disengaged to prevent accidental and unwanted level adjustments.

The LX-2 is built with 14-gauge steel with a ‘book-end’ design to protect the connections and switches. Rigid I-beam construction prevents torque from being applied to the circuit board, eliminating the possibility of damaging solder joints. The LX-2 has a compact footprint, with the added benefit of allowing up to eight units to be rackmounted using the Radial J-Rak. It will carry a street price of US$219.99.
