USB I/O VSR [USB-5]   NEW!

ARX is excited to present the new ARX USB I/O VSR  a true Plug and Play USB 24 bit High Resolution digital/analog pro audio interface. VSR stands for Variable Sample Rate - which allows the unit to record and playback at three different sample rates: 44.1, 48, and 96 KHz.

Plug and Play or Install ASIO Driver - your choice

The ARX USB I/O VSR installs as a fully compatible generic USB audio device. The default sample rate of 24 bit 44.1 KHz requires no special driver program installation on Mac OSX, Win XP, and Win7 or 8 - just plug and play. To run the expanded Hi Res sample rates of 48 and 96 KHz, an ASIO driver is available for download from the ARX website.

USB DI HP [USB-4]   NEW!
In response to many requests from users of our original USB DI who have been using it for specific applications, ARX is excited to present the new ARX USB DI-HP - everything that the original USB DI was, with the addition of a headphone output with its own level control. It is still a true Plug and Play 24 bit digital to analog pro audio interface, removing the need to use any existing sound card outputs, but now its output level can be monitored quietly and accurately. Naturally it still features full transformer balanced output isolation to eliminate earth loops / ground hum and other extraneous interaction noise and distortion.

The addition of the headphone output and control allows easy personal monitoring of the audio signal passing through the USB DI-HP without the need for Monitor Loudspeakers. See SEPCS Here

USB I/O [USB-3]
As of January 2013 the USB I/O has been updated with 24 bit High Resolution ADC & DAC's.

In keeping with our policy of creating essential audio interfaces, ARX is excited to present the new USB I/O - a true Plug and Play USB digital/analog pro audio interface. It removes the need to use any existing sound card outputs, with their inherent noisy environment and problematic grounding. A professional level USB Direct Box.

The ARX USB I/O features full transformer balanced Inputs and Outputs, providing the isolation required to eliminate earth loops / ground hum and other extraneous interaction noise and distortion. It installs as a fully compatible generic USB audio device, requiring no special driver program installation on Mac OSX, Win XP, Windows 7 and Vista. The front panel has Left and Right transformer balanced analog XLR Input and Output connectors that connect to any standard balanced analog inputs and outputs. On the rear panel there is a Type B USB connector, as well as a ground lift switch and a status LED that indicates the USB I/O is connected and operating. It is ideal for interfacing any USB equipped computer (especially notebook/laptop computers) with the balanced inputs and outputs of professional sound systems. Security features include Kensington®-type computer lock slot and optional bracket kit for under-table mounting. The ARX USB I/O is available in Dual Channel format, and is hand made in Australia.

ACTIVE DIRECT BOXES AND RACK UNITS
 
DI Plus RC Single Channel Active Direct Box with NiMH battery
Working with the pedigree of our industry standard DI Plus and DI Plus 2 Direct Boxes, we've redesigned and updated our circuitry and packaging, and the end result is our new DI Plus RC Direct Box.

We've powered these new products with internal long life NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable. NiMH batteries exhibit no memory effect and a long life recharge cycle.

As a manufacturer, ARX is well aware of the problems of disposing of batteries in an environmentally friendly way so we've powered the DI Plus2 RC with an internal long life NiMH rechargeable battery that can be charged off either the phantom power on the mic line, or via the 12V DC input, removing battery "throw away" as an issue.

The new DI Plus RC features a low noise high impedance input buffer with switchable 20dB Pad, and a low distortion high current output stage able to drive the longest cable runs. It represents another major step forward in active direct boxes. Packaged in a single channel stand-alone format, the DI Plus RC represents a fresh look at active D.I. concepts.

Precision engineered
Ultra quiet, ultra clean circuitry delivers maximum headroom whatever the signal. Premium grade components, plus an all-steel chassis gives excellent hum and noise specifications and superb audio quality in a tough, roadworthy package.

Managing Levels
The DI Plus RC features a Normal gain high impedance unbalanced input on the front panel, running to a balanced XLR output on the rear. There is also a separate -40dB Speaker Level input for signal coming from the External (auxiliary) speaker output of an amplifier. A global Pad switch drops both the normal input and the speaker input by a further 20dB, making it suitable for all applications, from the softest keyboard to the hottest broadcast levels. Whether you're a Studio or Live Sound engineer, installation contractor, or broadcast engineer, you want all the dynamics and clarity of the original sound source transferred to the mixing console. The ARX DI Plus RC provides a rugged, no-compromise solution to all direct injection and signal balancing requirements.

Automatic Phantom switching
The DI Plus RC will automatically switch itself to the console's own Phantom Power, if available, and an LED will indicate this mode. Turn the Phantom Power off and it will instantly revert back to battery mode.

Rugged all-steel case
A lot of direct boxes are fitted into brittle cast alloy cases. Not this one! The tough all-steel inner and outer chassis of the DI Plus RC provide excellent RF/EMF shielding while making it a sturdy, heavy duty unit that is hard to dislodge, and hard to leave behind.

    A Pro Audio Toolbox
    This unique and flexible audio toolbox allows Six independent unbalanced audio sources to easily and quietly interface with Balanced pro audio systems, either to individual channels or summed down to one Master output.

    But that's not all
    By pressing a single switch on the rear panel the DI-6SM will change modes from 6 Direct Boxes plus Mixer to being a 6 way Splitter (mic/line distribution amplifier). Now it will split an incoming microphone or line signal to 6 individual outputs or zones, with an XLR Loop Out to send the microphone output to a mixing desk as well. Switchable phantom power and Gain trim for the Mic input completes this new package

    On the front panel, each channel has 2 IN/OUT jacks, a level control from infinity (off) through 0dB to +15dB gain, and a Clip indicator LED.

    The Master section has a Master volume control and status LED’s indicating whether the unit is in DI+Mixer or in Splitter mode. For your convenience there is also a balanced jack Mix output on the front panel, in parallel with the balanced XLR Mix output on the rear panel.

    Balanced Outputs
    On the rear, each channel has an XLR Balanced output, with associated Ground lift switch and status LED, to isolate the chassis and electronic grounds.

    The Master section has a Balanced XLR output on the rear, and a Balanced Jack output on the front panel. In addition there is a Balanced XLR input with a switch to put the unit in either DI+Mixer or into Splitter mode. In Splitter mode there is a switch to toggle between Microphone and Line level input, as well as a Phantom Power switch and a Loop Output for a microphone signal to go to a Mixing desk as well

    Universal AC Power
    AC power range is a universal 100 to 120V or 220 to 240V AC, and is connected to the unit via a removable power lead and standard 3 pin IEC connector, with built-in fuse and voltage change switch.
