The MaxxKonnect Group, based in Pelham, Ala., has launched a line of problem-solving adapters called MaxxAdapt.
“These handy, cost-effective devices will save you time and headaches for various audio and logic installations,” it states.
The MK XD/SH-4 adapter breaks out the DB-9 AES outputs on the XDS-PRO series satellite receivers into four StudioHub-compatible RJ-45 jacks. Each passive output jack has a removable ground jumper, and the entire board is no wider than the DB-9 jack. Top-mounted connectors keep cables out of the way. A two-output version is also available.
The MK XD-ANA adapter is useful to adapt the analog DB-9 outputs on the XDS series satellite receivers to StudioHub-compatible RJ-45 jacks. These passive adapters have removable ground jumpers for both the RJ-45 connector, as well as the DB-9 to help isolate ground loops.
Additional versions will be released soon, including an XDS relay adapter. All versions include removable mounting screws.
