Radial JS2 Passive Microphone Splitter

Details
The Radial JS2 Passive Microphone Splitter features a flexible two-way design with a high-performance Jensen transformer to offer exceptional sound as well as noise-elimination. The JS2 utilises a double-sided military-spec PCB with a full ground plane to reduce radio frequency interference, as well as glass-filled nylon XLR connectors with large and robust nickel-silver pin contacts. Equipped with an isolated XLR output, as well as two direct thru-puts and an XLR microphone input, the JS2 can process and split a wide range of signals with versatile routing. The passive design of the device requires no external power, whilst an incredibly tough 14-gauge steel book-end enclosure and I-Beam chassis loaded with premium components ensures superior protection and durability.

Potential Applications

  • 2-Way Split: The Radial JS2 is the perfect interface for splitting a microphone to feed more than one mixer at the same time. 100% isolation eliminates potential ground loops between the two consoles for quiet performance. The main output provides a 48V phantom power return path to the microphone
  • Compare 2 Mic Preamps: In the studio, it is often advantageous to compare the sound of two mic preamps on a particular voice. The JS2 is ideally suited for this as it will not colour the sound of the mic or add distortion. The plug and play simplicity ensures rapid setup times

Features

  • Two-way design ensures plenty of flexibility
  • -30dB input pad allows +4dB line-level devices to be connected
  • Standard 600Ω XLR main microphone input
  • 600Ω direct thru connects to main PA with phantom-power return path to microphone
  • Glass-filled nylon XLR connectors with extra-large nickel-silver pin contacts
  • Double-sided military-spec PCB ensures excellent durability with a full ground plane to reduce radio frequency interference
  • Jensen transformers provide 100% isolation to eliminate noise caused by ground loops
  • Extra durably switches with a metal outer casing - rated at over 20,000 cycles
  • Isolated 600Ω XLR output for connecting to a recording or broadcast system without noise
  • Ground lift disconnects the ground path at the XLR output
  • Second 600Ω direct thru can connect to recording or monitor systems
  • Unique book-end design creates a protective zone around the jacks and switches
  • 14-gauge steel I-Beam enclosure makes it impossible to torque the PCB and eliminates cold solder joints
