AES/EBU digital audio splitters and panels are used for balanced 110-ohm signals, and accommodate signal levels to 10 volts. Since proper impedance is maintained, the splitters do not have to be symmetrically applied. Owing to careful specification and minimal signal modification, units may be… View this post
