S2-CSGE : Stereo Line & Gram Channel with EQ
This channel is the Dual Stereo Line channel fitted with an RIAA input amplifier on the second input. The balanced stereo line input is on Neutrik XLR connectors and the unbalanced RIAA stereo input on phonos.
The channel is used for connecting a turntable or record deck. The GRAM inputs have RIAA equalisation suitable for magnetic pick-up cartridges.
Selecting the LINE/GRAM button switches the channel input between Stereo Line and RIAA . The button is illuminated in red to indicate when Gram (RIAA) is selected. The operation of the button is inhibited when the channel is "live".
There are separate logic remote output controls for both of the two inputs providing start/stop functions by fader, or ON button. Remotes, etc, are triggered when the fader is up and the channel ON button shows green. The start function can be configured to be either momentary (500mS) or latched for each input. The remote outputs on the 9 way D type plug are fed from NPN opto-isolators.
Continuous momentary start can also be enabled such that when the fader is up and the channel is on, each press of the ON button triggers a momentary start.
Two remote pins can also be configured for general use as either inputs, outputs, latching, or momentary and active high or low. Uses for this include channel live indication or specific channel function remote control.
The BAL/PAN control adjusts the stereo balance in the following manner : Full anti-clockwise shifts the signal to the left and increases the signal by 6dB (right channel reduces by 6dB); full clockwise shifts the signal to the right and increases the signal by 6dB (left channel reduces by 6dB).
The 100mm VCA fader provides unity gain when fully open. The channel input signal is routed to the outputs whenever the fader is open, the ON button is selected and either or both of the routing buttons are selected.
The S2-CSGE channel is the Stereo Line & Gram channel as above but fitted with equalisation, providing 10dB cut and boost at HF (6.5kHz) and LF (100Hz). The EQ button places the equalisation in and out of the signal path. The button is illuminated in yellow when the EQ is active.
The channel can be used to control either one of two separate timer displays.
