JK Audio is adding to its RemoteMix line with the new x4 and x5 (shown) models. The company sees these as useful as a front-end mixer for POTS, ISDN, IP, smartphone or laptop codecs in remotes for news and sports coverage.
Both models share many of the same features: four-channel, XLR mic preamps, 48 V phantom power, 120 Hz low-cut filter, four 1/4-inch headphone jacks with individual source selector and level controls, 3.5 mm send/receive and 3.5 mm wired headset input.
The x5 adds a 24-bit USB codec, AES digital output, soft peak limiter, 1 kHz tone generator and XLR headphone cue input.
JK Audio estimates battery life for the two 9 V batteries to be greater than 10 hours for the x4 and greater than eight hours for the x5. The units are expected to be available in July.
