(Open Box)

The ART S8 can be used to split eight balanced low impedance microphone signals into sixteen (eight pairs). Each channel of the S8 Microphone Splitter provides one direct output and one transformer isolated output from a single microphone, making it the ideal signal splitting solution for dividing mic signals for separate Front-of-House monitor mixes, or for remote recording applications. The direct outputs pass phantom power from the main mixer to the microphones for use with condenser microphones. The S8 includes a ground-lift switch on each isolated output to reduce hum due to ground loops between connected AC-powered units. For versatility the S8 mic splitter also features an attenuator pad switch on each input that can be used to connect preamplified signals to the two microphone-level outputs on each channel. Typical preamplified signals would originate from instrument preamplifiers, mixers, keyboards, etc.

With such an extensive history of making audio processors, ART has consistently set new industry standards and watched competitors follow their innovation and the ART S8 Microphone Splitter is no exception. ART continues to set the bar for high-quality audio products at a reasonable cost to audio enthusiasts of all types.

Great piece of gear

Comments about ART S8 8-Channel Balanced Mic Splitter:

I've been an active musician in a band since 1991. During that time I've been the "keeper of the PA" for the bands that I've been in. This is the single best piece of gear I've ever added to my system. Being on stage is not the worst seat in the house anymore. It lets me run two completely seperate systems; monitor and main. Now when the sound guy makes a change in the mains, it has no effect on the monitors.
