Gefen Audio Distribution Amplifiers

from Gefen perform double duty, splitting one analog audio signal multiple times and enabling the long-distance extension of each individual output. Two new models have been released: a 1x8 that distributes up to eight audio outputs and a 1x16 for up to 16 outputs.

Each Audio Distribution Amplifier is equipped with one mini-stereo 35mm input interface, enabling compatibility with most personal computers analog audio ports, plus stereo receivers through the headphone jack. Tiny metallic receiver units, one for each output, connect the Audio DA to the speakers or audio components.

Each output can be extended up to 100 meters (330 feet) from the source, making the Audio DAs useful for computer sound extension, whether in the home, office, classroom or presentation venue. When extended, a CAT5 cable is used for each long distance signal transmission.

One 5-volt power supply drives each Audio DA and its extended receivers. Both the 1x8 Audio DA ($199) and the 1x16 Audio DA ($299) are rackmountable for behind-the-scenes installation and operation, and may be purchased online at or through a Gefen reseller, also listed online. Audio receivers are $49 each.
