Far better than Y adapters!
The ART SplitCOM Mic Splitter/Combiner lets you run 2 mixers at once or any other application requiring the ability to split the signal from the source.
Say you are running 2 mixers at once—perhaps one for the monitor system and one for the main PA (or one for a broadcast feed and one for the PA). If a performer wants his/her mic split into a powered monitor and the PA, you will need the ability to split the signal from the source so that the signal can go both ways. It is also important that the output of the source encounters the right impedance.
If you simply used a Y adapter, signal strength and quality would be lost. For this reason, the SplitCOM professional splitter has a built-in transformer. Since you may be splitting the balanced output of an instrument amp or preamp, another consideration is hum caused by a ground loop. The SplitCOM splitter box also features a ground lift switch to reduce that problem.

Bought for use with an in-ear monitor system. Had no problems. Only thing is - you get a slightly different sound from the two outputs. Both are perfectly usable signals, though.
The "Parallel Output" is wired directlyfrom the input which means it will passphantom power and should cause no signaldegradation. The "Output" goes throughan isolation transformer and I discoveredthat on the unit I received was wired 180 degreesout of phase!!! I took the unit apart andrewired to correct this.Otherwise the unit checks out OK, I did acomparison of the signal from the two outputsand they looked identical on my HD recorder.I find it inexcusable, however, that anyproduct should have it's output out of phasewith the input unless the manufacturer makesthis well known before you buy!If not for this, I would have ratedthe product much higher.
