GeckoFlex 8911 AES 75Ω Reclocking Distribution Amplifier

The amount of digital audio is ever increasing as studios and broadcast facilities transition to digital. The 8911 offers a low-cost method of reclocking AES/EBU digital audio signals to ensure signal integrity. Best of all, the 8911 fits into our 8900-V series Gecko chassis or into a GeckoFlex chassis with an 8900V-R rear board, which boast passive differential loop-through inputs, high density, and a wide range of distribution and format conversion functions.

  • Differential looping input offers excellent common mode rejection (CMR)
  • Eight outputs
  • Accepts 48, 44.1, and 32 kHz
  • Reclocking removes jitter induced by long cable runs
Note: for balanced 110Ω requirements see the 8912 series digital audio distribution amplifiers
