Each of the four stereo line level inputs accepts either a balanced or an unbalanced signal. Each input is equipped with a rear panel screwdriver-adjustable input gain trimmer. Input signal levels between -15 dBV and +8 dBu may be set to the proper operating level as indicated by a stereo dual-LED VU meter. This assures ample headroom at all normal operating levels. The module is equipped with two identical dual-led VU meters, one on the front panel, the other on the rear panel. The maximum input level is +25 dBu.
The RU-ASX4DR was designed for absolute silent switching of audio signals using only solid-state switching circuitry. Each of the VU-meters, left and right, is calibrated to read +4 dBu feeding the corresponding balanced output.
Inputs are selected by a sequential remote control such as an RDL D-RCS4, by a momentary remote control such as an RDL D-RC4M or by an external open-collector momentary closure to ground. The RU-ASX4DR may be remote controlled from a single or from multiple locations. When a source is selected, the RU-ASX4DR provides a 25 mA open-collector output to control other equipment or modules. A front-panel LED indicates the selected source. Only one source may be selected at a time. If the momentary input terminal for a selected source is triggered again, all inputs are turned off.
The RU-ASX4DR offers exceptional headroom, very low distortion, excellent crosstalk isolation, wide flat frequency response and extremely low noise with very high common-mode signal rejection. It provides exceptional audio performance for the most critical applications in a professional audio environment.
