New Radial Engineering Catapult RX4 Cat 5Snake for Audio/AES Routing (Receiver)

Original price $210.00
Current price $189.99
SKU R800 8025

Designed for use with the TX4, the Radial Engineering Catapult RX4 is a snake which accepts four channels of analog or AES audio signal over Ethernet, and routes them into the eight XLR jacks provided. It's useful in live-sound reinforcement applications, as it allows live-sound stage techs to use relatively affordable cable to secure quality audio connections around large stages and venues. It’s also suitable for system contractors, who can now utilize pre-wired networks to move audio throughout disparate rooms.

The Catapult RX4 gives you 2 banks of XLR channels, each sporting four channels. Thus, you can split audio to multiple sources, if that's your desire. You'll also note the two RJ45-type EtherCON connections. One is a multi-channel input, for use with the TX4 on the transmission end. The other is a through-put, and can be implemented in routing signals to additional Catapults. A ground-lift switch helps in eliminating any noise issues on the Cat 5 line, while a steel handle provides easy transport, and four bumpers protect the Ethernet jacks and ground-lift switch from wear and tear.
