The MTR PB-96 is a 1U patchbay, for interfacing mixers, tape/hard disc recorders, outboard processors etc., has 48 top quality stereo jack sockets front and rear. Using mono jack plugs automatically un-balances the signal.
Patchbays increase the amount of cable in your system, and this makes hum and noise rejection even more important. A balanced patchbay works for unbalanced applications, but an unbalanced patchbay can never keep the hum and noise down.
Supplied ‘half-normaled’, easy un-normalising by reversing the pcb cards, or by cutting tracks. Connector lifetime: more than 10.000 plug-in/plug-out cycles. No top-mounted switches that you can’t get to when the unit is installed, or fiddly solder pads. Weight 1.4Kg.
