The Radial OX8 is a high-performance 8-channel 3-way mic splitter that is equipped with an input and three outputs: a direct feed for 48V phantom return, an auxiliary feed with ground lift switch and a transformer isolated output.
Although primarily designed for mic signals, the OX8 is equipped with a -36dB pad for line level sources, making the OX8 highly adaptable for all types of signal splitting. The OX8 is particularly well suited to accommodate live recording by delivering a transformer isolated audio signal path for the recording engineer while providing a direct feed to the front of house and monitor consoles.
For maximum flexibility, several connector options are available. Inputs may be accessed via the front panel, using standard XLRs, or the rear panel, with a choice of either 25 pin D-subs (wired to the Tascam standard) or Euro screw-down terminal connectors. Outputs include D-subs and Euro connectors, which are also located on the rear panel. These make it easy to connect to popular multi-track recording systems while providing easy termination for permanent installations.
Because it is 100% passive, the OX8 does not require any power to make it work. Maximum durability is ensured with heavy duty 14 gauge steel construction throughout. The OX8 can be ordered with our own custom wound Radial transformers or may be ordered with Jensen Transformers.
Also available is the LX8, a +4dB balanced line level version of the OX8. The LX8 comes with Jensen audio transformers only.
The Radial OX8 and LX8 – great sounding splitters that that are easy to use, compact and convenient.
