Cable assemblies
3600: 3600 pre-terminated cable assemblies are small and flexible. When combined with RJ45 plugs they offer fast, easy installation and termination. The use of a braided sleeve and pulling eyes provides additional protection when pulling and routing the assemblies through overhead trays, raised floors, cabinet poke-throughs and cable management hardware. The cable assemblies come in standardized six-cable bundles. Each 23 AWG 4-pair cable features Belden’s patented Bonded-Pair technology to ensure CAT-6 performance and reliability, before and after installation. The assemblies are available in 1′ increments from 6′-50′ assembly lengths, and in 5′ increments from 55′ to 295′ assembly lengths. Each is labeled with a unique serial number and bar code for easier asset management.

Mic processor
M2: Among the M2’s features are twin high-grade, extremely low noise, wide bandwidth microphone preamplifiers, phantom power, Vorsis designed audio processing algorithms and analog and digital outputs. The M2 is controlled utilizing a Graphical User Interface equipped with three user levels. No user controls are on the front panel. Its dual independent processing channels can take the place of two conventional microphone processors. Full processing features are available such as de-essing, downward expansion, equalization, high pass, low pass and notch filters.

High-resolution mobile recorder
MR-2: The MR-2 records in ultra-high fidelity DSD format, using a 2.8MHz sampling rate, which captures sonic details while preserving the ambience of the original recording location. Using the included AudioGate software, this original datastream recording can be re-purposed into nearly any audio format with minimal fidelity loss. For job-specific recording, the MR-2 can also record in any of the popular multi-bit formats, from MP2 and MP3 up to 24-bit/192kHz. It features a built-in, professional-grade, electret stereo condenser microphone. The mic housing can be rotated toward the front, top or rear of the MR-2 in eight 30-degree steps. An on-board analog limiter, low-cut filter and bass EQ are available to enhance the quality of recordings made on the go.

Digital radio recorder
RadiVo: RadiVo is like TiVo for the radio. It features a dot matrix LCD display and AM/FM digital radio with six preset memories for each band. It records AM/FM broadcasts in real-time or via pre-programmed schedule to internal flash in WAV format. Time-shift recording pauses live radio so listeners don’t miss programming, and one program can be recorded while another is listened to. RadiVo has 1GB internal memory for up to 70 hours at 32kb/s mono WAV or 35 hours at 32kb/s stereo WAV of recording time. It also features a built-in FM transmitter, built-in speaker and connects to computer via USB port for file transfer to PC. A remote control and cigarette lighter adaptor are included. External connections include: headphone jack, dc input jack, USB jack and external antenna jack.

LED logo light
Enberg Electronics
3L: The 3L LED logo light is all LED � never replace another lamp. It includes a PS3L power supply/controller, features steady/flashing operation, free station logo, side view light, warm white hue, powder-coated aluminum sides, black or beige color, and no-glare glass front. It is available with generic lights without a logo, features 120/230V operation and consumes just 8W. The 3L is also available in a flush-mount model.

AEA Technology
Filter: For engineers who need to block or band pass certain frequencies these filters will provide that filtering on the input to the VIA Echo’s Spectrum Analyzer. Ten filters are available, blocking/passing different frequencies. Many of the filters can be used in combinations. Any of the filters can be used in conjunction with the pre-amplifier to provide both a maximum noise floor and frequency filtering as desired for their specific application.

Computerized battery analyzer
Optim Engineering
CBAIII: Unlike a simple load tester, the CBA will test virtually any type or size of battery, any chemistry, any number of cells up to 55V. It is capable of higher test rates: up to 40 amps or 150W, whichever is higher. It not only tests the total amount of energy stored in a battery (capacity in amp-hrs), but it graphically displays and charts voltage versus amp-hours. It has an electronic constant current load controlled both with software and electronics. Graphs may be displayed, saved and printed. Multiple graphs of the same battery, or multiple batteries, may be compared or overlaid. Test labels can be printed and placed directly on batteries to remind users of the last time they were tested and how they performed.

Linear headphone amplifier
Transaudio Group
Lehmann Black Cube: Linear Audio’s Black Cube Linear headphone amplifier has a frequency response extending from 10Hz (-0.3dB) to 35kHz (-1dB). The signal-to-noise ratio is better than 95dB at 0dB gain, with greater than 70dB channel separation at 10kHz. Total harmonic distortion is less than 0.001 percent at 6mW and 300 ohms. Selectable gain (0, 10 or 20dB) effectively optimizes the output level of the zero global feedback Class A output stage.
