Extreme Extender Features: * Extend ADAT® Optical cables up to 500 ft * Uses standard CAT5E cables * Does not affect sound quality * Small size, durable construction * Status LED's The Extreme Extenders were designed to solve ADAT Optical distance limitations. The Extreme Extender ADAT In converts ADAT optical to HearBus CAT5E cable.
Using CAT5E the effective length of an ADAT Optical interface can be extended up to 500 feet. This is accomplished without any loss of audio quality. The ADAT "Thru" output provides a buffered pass-thru for connection to local ADAT devices. The Extreme Extender ADAT Out converts the CAT5E HearBus back to ADAT optical. Two parallel optical outputs provide drive for two separate ADAT devices.
A bi-color clock status LED indicates the presence (green) or absence (red) of the ADAT clock. In addition to acting as an ADAT optical extender, the Extreme Extender ADAT In may be connected to the Optical output of any ADAT device, such as a DAW, Mixer, etc. and connected to the input of a Hear Back Hub. The Extreme Extender ADAT Out can be connected to the HearBus out of a hub to obtain two ADAT outputs. The Extreme Extender ADAT In is powered using a small external power supply.
