Connect almost anything to an XLR input!
The AV Direct from ART is a multi-purpose tool that allows you to plug in virtually any sound source to an XLR input. The AV Direct is the ideal input solution for any application where stereo iPods, Laptop computers, consumer DVD players, consumer HiFi equipment, or video machines have to be connected to a single XLR microphone level input. Unlike standard gender bender cables or DI boxes, the AV Direct can accept virtually any input connection and output level (including amplified speaker outputs) and offers remote level control, ideal for setting the volume of your component at the source. Since you never know what might get thrown your way, every engineer needs an AV Direct in their toolbox!ART AV Direct at a Glance:

A multitude of input options
The AV Direct has stereo RCA, 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch TRS line level inputs, as well as a 1/4-inch and bare wire pressure clip speaker level inputs. The speaker level inputs are heavily padded and transformer isolated from the XLR output, allowing amplified speaker level (up to 100 watts at 8 ohms) to be tapped off, and sent to a microphone level input.
Professional features for professional results
A switchable 4.8kHz high-cut filter, ground lift and variable level control allow the AV Direct to effectively filter out any extraneous unwanted noise while offering variable volume control at source. A 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response ensures the AV Direct will function seamlessly with any high quality audio source.
