High Headroom Design
A custom instrumentation-grade input circuit was designed for the DS 20 using advanced analogue design techniques to create the ideal input impedance match. This innovative approach provides an ultra low noise and ultra-linear system with a ruler-flat frequency response that ranges from 30 Hz to 45 kHz (±3 dB).
Connectivity & More
All of the Input and Output connections on the DS 20 feature genuine high quality Neutrik* XLR jacks for the ultimate in signal integrity. Dual independent Earth Lift switches are provided for both the Output A and Output B jacks, eliminating earth loops between equipment on different mains electricity supplies. DS 20’s fully transformer-isolated design further ensures pristine performance – even in large-scale production environments.
Compact & Rugged Construction
The ultra-compact DS 20 is built to handle the rigours of life on the road via a thick and rugged aluminium extrusion that protects the electronics. The enclosure’s roadworthiness is further enhanced through the implementation of sturdy rubber corner bumpers.
The DS 20 Pro Splitter 2 allows you to send identical copies of balanced input signals to multiple discrete destinations thanks to its incredible frequency response of 30 Hz to 45 kHz (±3 dB), Midas custom-design transformer for the ultimate in signal integrity and galvanic isolation, and highly intuitive design – all in a road-ready enclosure that stands ready for your input.
