Essential Info

The MuxLab Stereo Hi-Fi Balun allows unbalanced line level stereo analogue audio to be transmitted via Category 5 unshielded copper twisted pair (UTP) in a point-to-point connection. The product is designed for audio applications where full-range, hi-fidelity audio frequency response is required. Used in pairs, the Stereo Hi-Fi Balun eliminates costly and bulky coaxial cable, allowing audio equipment to be connected or moved within a structured cabling environment. The MuxLab Balun is used in pairs, with one attached on each end of the Cat-5 cable, one for transmitting the stereo signal and the other for receiving and outputting the signal. Applicable devices include DVD players, satellite receivers, MPEG players, laptops, hi-fidelity stereo audio amplifiers, audio switchers, AV monitors, powered subwoofer and other line level audio equipment.
