Radial Introduces the LX-2 Passive Line Splitter and Attenuator

Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the LX-2™ passive line splitter.  The Radial LX-2 allows you to easily send a single source to two different destinations at once without noise, 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 combo jack, which allows you to connect balanced or unbalanced line level signals to be split to two different destinations. A premium Jensen™ transformer inside 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 allows you to attenuate overly hot signals. This lets you drive your mic preamps hard to achieve coloration, while trimming the level at the LX-2 to avoid clipping the inputs of your recording interface. This trim control is activated by a recessed 'set & forget' switch for live use or, in situations where attenuation is not needed, simply disengage this switch to prevent accidental and unwanted level adjustments.

The LX-2 is built with 14-gauge steel to ensure it continues to reliably perform night after night even on the most demanding tours, while a book-end design protects the connections and switches. Rigid I-beam construction prevents torque from being applied to the circuit board, eliminating the possibility of cold solder joints. The LX-2 has a compact footprint, with the added benefit of allowing up to 8 units to be rack-mounted using the Radial J-Rak™.

The Radial LX-2 is an uncompromising problem solver for your audio toolkit, providing Jensen transformer-isolated line level splitting and attenuation in a compact and rugged device.
