XTA DS8000 - Audio Distribution System


XTA DS8000 - Audio Distribution System

Featuring all new microphone pre-amps designed by Gottelier award winning Alex Cooper, the DS8000 offers many new facilities including a dual redundant power supply*, simple Outside Broadcast “one to many” split switching and 48V “safe“ functions to prevent tampering.  

Subtle panel lighting for dark under-stage environments and the option of adding an ADC card for integration into digital networks, plus bespoke new output transformers all combine to produce a package that enhances its predecessor’s reputation as a flexible, rugged high quality distribution system.

Rugged 2U steel casing with recessed control panel area to avoid damage and accidental adjustments.

Illumination of control panel area for low light conditions.

DC power supply link capability – enables safe fail over mode for paired units in the event of a power loss to either unit.

New design discrete mic preamps with exceptional noise and CMR for incredible performance, even with long cables (typically 120dB at 1kHz). Improved gain range now switchable in 6dB steps from -6dB up to +42dB.

Individual channel 4 segment LED metering with attendant solo and 48V indicators.

Remote control of phantom power on inputs via sensing on FOH and MON outputs.

Individual phantom power on all channels, with “safe” switching for FOH, MON and front panel.

Ground lift circuit switches to prevent hum – separate MON and FOH control.

“O/B Split” modes switchable to feed channel 1’s input to first 16 outputs, or channel 5’s to last 16 outputs.

Solo listen with high power phones amp and external bus to allow other units to be monitored without having to move headphones jack.

DS8000D – go digital

Add even more flexibility with 2 x 8 AES outputs, with wordclock sync and master clock out.

Featuring reassuring XTA quality ADCs operating at 48, 96 or 192k, this is all available in addtiion to the already comprehensive analogue output makeup.
