Radial J+4 Stereo alanced line Driver

Vancouver BC: The Radial J+4 is a high performance line driver designed to take -10dB consumer devices and amplify them so that they can easily integrate with professional level +4dB devices.

According to Radial President Peter Janis: “The Radial J+4 is the first product that was developed by our ‘Texas Team'— Kevin Burgen and Drake Williams both came to us after spending many years working directly under the eye of industry icon Rupert Neve. Kevin played a key role in developing the circuits for many of Mr. Neve’s later designs while Drake managed all of the PCB and mechanical layouts. I must tell you that I was astounded when I first plugged it in.  The J+4 is so quiet, I did not know it was on. When I hit ’play’ on the CD player I was literally blown away!”

The Radial J+4 is fully equipped with choice of stereo ¼”, RCA and 3.5mm mini TRS connector inputs. 100% discreet electronics deliver spectacular audio with greater than +17dB of gain while transformer isolation eliminates buzz and hum caused by ground loops. A high pass filter reduces low frequency rumble. Outputs are XLR following the AES pin-out standard.  Power is supplied from an external 15VDC supply and up to 8 units may be brought together and rack mounted using the Radial J-Rak.

As with all Radial products, the J+4 is made from 14 gauge steel and employs a unique
I-Beam internal skeleton for added rigidity. This eliminates stress on the PC board and greatly reduces chance for solder joints to go cold. Switches and level control are protected by the unique book-end design further extending lifespan and the full-bottom no-slip pad ensures the J+4 will stay put, wherever it is assigned to do its task!

These features combine to make the Radial J+4 an ideal interface for broadcast, live sound and post production where analog high impedance signal must be interfaced within a low impedance line level environment without introducing noise or artifact.

Delivery Schedule:         January 2010
Retail price:                   $220.00 USD
Anticipated street price:  $199.99 USD
