  • The RU‑AFC2 is a stereo bi‑directional audio format converter. The bi‑directional format allows the RU‑AFC2 to fully convert the stereo input and stereo output of a consumer audio product to professional balanced standards. It can equally convert the stereo input and stereo output of a professional audio product to consumer unbalanced standards. The audio fidelity, low noise, low distortion and excellent crosstalk performance of the RU‑AFC2 are ideally suited to the most critical applications. The RU‑AFC2 has been carefully engineered in meticulous detail to provide the ultimate audio interface package available.

    Unbalanced audio connections are available on front‑panel RCA jacks. Balanced audio connections are available on front‑panel XLR jacks and on rear‑panel detachable terminal blocks. The shield connections of the XLR output jacks are connected to the case through a rear‑panel ground‑lift switch. The unbalanced to balanced section includes an additional MONO summed output on a rear‑panel detachable terminal block which may be wired balanced or unbalanced. The mono output may be used to drive patch‑bay jacks, powered monitors or subwoofer amplifiers.

    Each of the left and right outputs is equipped with a dual‑LED VU‑meter. The intensity of the green LED is proportional to the audio level. The red LED flashes at the calibrated output level, ‑10 dBV unbalanced or +4 dBu balanced. An individual multi turn level trimmer is provided on the front panel for each output channel.

    The RU‑AFC2 operates from ground‑referenced 24 Vdc. Use the RU‑AFC2 individually, or combine it with other RDL products as part of a complete audio/video system.
