Henry Touts Passive DA

Henry Touts Passive DA

The home of the little blue boxes is out with one that doesn’t even need a power cord.
The Henry Engineering Patchbox is a stereo output multiplier that distributes the analog stereo output of an audio mixer to the inputs of peripheral equipment. It can be used to feed a mixer’s output to DAT recorders, computer sound cards, CD recorders and other audio gear.
This is a “passive DA” that creates 11 stereo outputs from a single stereo input. Five outputs are balanced; six are unbalanced. Both professional and consumer gear can be used. All 11 outputs can be used simultaneously without interaction or signal degradation.
It needs no power, and the company says it adds “absolutely no noise or distortion” to the audio signal. List price: $195.
