Rolls RM83t 8-Channel Transformer Microphone Mixer

Rolls LogoThe Rolls RM83t ($252) is an eight channel mixer in a single rack space intended for a variety of sound reinforcement applications including board rooms, churches, mixing console expansion etc. Virtually any application where up to eight microphones need to be mixed together, and space is limited, is met by the RM83t.

Each of the RM83t's eight channels has a transformer balanced XLR microphone input, as well as a 1/4" unbalanced input. The 1/4" jacks may be internally reconfigured to become channel Inserts or Direct Outputs. Inserts provide a way to get each individual channel signal in and out of the RM83t mainly for processing purposes. A Direct Output is simply taking the signal from the channel only.

Rolls RM83T Each channel has individually switchable +48 VDC phantom power. The RCA Prefade (pre Master Level) Output may be connected to the RCA Aux Buss Input for cascading two RM83t units together. This Output may also be used for recording purposes, and the Aux Buss Input. The Main output for the RM83t is a balanced male XLR jack. This output has a switch for Line or Mic level output.

SoundTools XLR Sniffer / Sender

SoundTools LogoThe SoundTools XLR Sniffer / Sender Cable Tester ($45 and formerly known as "The Rat Pack") is composed of two small pieces, the Sniffer and the Sender.

SoundTools XLR Sniffer / Sender Cable TesterThe Sniffer works on either phantom power alone or power supplied by the Sender. The Sniffer shows the cable is good or has faults via three two-color green and red LEDs. The Sender is battery powered and only supplies power when hooked to the Sniffer insuring long battery life.

Dave Rat designed the "Rat Pack" while he was working sound for Rage Against the Machine.  After a bad channel on a snake resulted in a delayed start to a show, Dave brainstormed and came up with the "Rat Pack"   Dave explains some of the history behind the XLR Sniffer/Sender at this link

RCF Art 3 Series MKIII Loudspeakers

RCF LogoThe RCF Team always has the performer’s needs at the forefront of the design in order to create new lines of speakers with renewed features, improved sound clarity and definition, and even lighter weight systems.

The latest iconic design is the Art 3 Series MK III: an evolution in the active loudspeaker technology with a revolutionary design and sound. Every detail of the 3 Series MK III has been carefully studied in order to offer musicians and professionals the perfect tool to amplify their performance, night after night.

High quality materials, precise manufacturing, careful assembly and extensive quality control procedures complete the groundbreaking design work of the RCF R&D team.

All the transducers in the Art 3 Series MK III speakers feature high power ferrite magnets in order to guarantee better performance and make for easier transportation.

All Compression drivers and Transducers are precision built taking advantage of RCF’s superior moulding, assembly technologies and a wealth of professional knowledge and experience dedicated to achieving extremely high standards.

All Art 3 Series MK III two-way speakers are equipped with a new generation of 400 Watt digital amplifiers: 300 Watts for the woofers and 100 Watts for the compression drivers. This results in very high output, extremely low distortion and an incredible natural sound.

Each amplifier presents both XLR / jack balanced inputs, XLR output link, mic / line switch, volume and a switchable EQ Mode (Flat / Boost). The amplifier features a solid mechanical aluminium structure which not only stabilizes the amplifier during transportation but also assists in the heat dissipation.

All the Art 3 Series MK III amplifiers present a SMPS power supply section in order to produce maximum output and minimum transportation weight.

The new loudspeaker design looks aggressive while retaining familiar Art ergonomics which is the result of extensive combined functional and acoustic research (are they kidding?).

RCF Art 3 Series MK IIIThe Art 3 Series MK III two-way system cabinets are moulded in a special polypropylene composite material and are designed to dampen down vibrations even at maximum volume settings. The reflex porting has been resized to offer a better efficiency. The ART 310-A MK III is equipped with a top handle for greater portability; the bigger models have 3 ergonomically designed handles, 2 on the sides and one at the top. At the bottom a rugged steel pole mount has been installed in all models.
