2x6 is an AES/EBU-to-SPDIF interface and distribution
amplifier for digital audio signals. DigiMatch has two
distinct functions: (a) to convert between professional
(balanced) AES/EBU and consumer (unbalanced) SPDIF digital
audio signals; and (b) to distribute a digital input
signal(s) to multiple destinations.
has 2 inputs and 6 outputs: an AES/EBU input and 3 AES/EBU
outputs, plus an SPDIF input and 3 SPDIF outputs. Either
input can feed either or both sets of outputs, producing
4 possible modes of operation:
Convert: AES/EBU input feeds SPDIF outs; SPDIF input
feeds AES/EBU outs
DA-AES/EBU only: AES/EBU input feeds ALL outputs
DA-SPDIF only: SPDIF input feeds ALL outputs
DA-Split: AES/EBU input feeds AES/EBU outputs; SPDIF
input feeds SPDIF outputs.
are selected using front panel switches. The Convert
mode is essentially a digital MatchBox,
providing bi-directional conversion between AES/EBU
and SPDIF digital circuits, without altering any data
in the bitstream.
circuitry automatically corrects input levels that are
out of tolerance. All 6 DigiMatch outputs can be used
simultaneously and without interaction. The AES/EBU
inputs and outputs are transformer isolated. All outputs
are short-circuit protected and can drive long lines
without signal degradation.
is 1/3 rack width and can be mounted in an optional
rack shelf, or wall-mounted using optional wall/cabinet
mounting brackets. DigiMatch is powered by an internal
AC power supply.
