Violet Audio announces the release the D8XI and D8XO D-Sub 25-pin -> 8 XLR Audio Break-out Terminals at NAMM 07.

The D8XI and D8XO audio break-out terminals offer robust and reliable break-out connection for either analog or AES/EBU digital audio signal material from D-Sub 25-pin to 8 male (D8XO) or female (D8XI) XLR connectors.

Featuring industry standard Tascam/Digidesign pinout configuration on the D-sub 25-pin connectors, the D8XI and D8XO are suitable for use with many professional audio recorders, mixers, and the like.

Thanks to a pair of cleverly designed rotatable rack-mount ears, the D8XI and D8XO can be mounted in a rack so that the XLR connectors face either the front or rear of the rack chassis. Perfect for easy terminal access, or simply for keeping permanent cable clutter tidy and out of sight. Dual (2) x D-Sub 25-pin connectors (front & rear panel) also allow each unit to be used as a handy digital or analog splitter terminal. Great for splitting off dual sends, monitor mixers, etc.

Originally developed to partner Violet Audio's new LanCoreā„¢ enabled D32IO-A Digital Audio Snake Terminal, our design team threw in a few additional features ensuring that the D8XI and D8XO had universal appeal and would also be adopted for use with a multitude of third party applications.

The D8XI and D8XO main features:

  • 8 x Male XLR (D8XI) or 8 x Female XLR (D8XO)
  • 2 x parallel D-Sub 25-pin connectors (1 front, 1 rear) for passive splitter functionality
  • Analog or Digital signal compatibility
  • Passive operation, no power supply required
  • Rotatable rack-mount ears front/rear panel rotation

When Violet Audio's Sales Director Danny Olesh was asked about the new D8XI and D8XO units he commented: "Many of our customers have been looking for a solution that doesn't involve a huge messy tail of XLR breakouts. Our D8XI and D8XO tidy up the audio cable landscape and help make installs both more organized and time efficient."

In addition to the full range of Violet Audio products, the D8XI and D8XO D-Sub 25-pin -> 8 XLR audio breakout terminals will be showcased at NAMM 2007. Visitors are welcome to visit the Violet Audio team at Booth#6809, January 18-21, 2007 - Anaheim convention center, Anaheim, California, USA.
