Lectrosonics just announced their new SR-AES3 Audio Output Adapter, a new endplate which gives ALL SR receivers AES digital output capabilities. Fitted with a word clock port, it can be run as analog, AES digital with internal word clock (no external connection) or as AES with external word clock. Now, any SR series receiver will be capable of delivering 2-channel digital audio direct to the mixer or recorder eliminating the gain staging questions of "what should my output level be?" and "what should my input gain on my camera/mixer be?".
With the Lectrosonics SR-AES3 Audio Output Adapter, the output of any Lectrosonics SR Series receiver can be delivered in analog or digital audio formats. The SR-AES3 unit will work with all SR receiver versions to provide audio in the following formats:
- AES3 digital audio at 48 kHz sampling with an internal clock
- AES3 digital audio with an external word clock at 44.1, 48 or 96 kHz sampling
- Balanced analog audio from -50 dBu to +5 dBu in 1 dB steps
One or two channels of digital audio are delivered from the CH1 jack. The CH2 jack delivers analog audio at all times. The selected diversity mode on the receiver will determine if the CH1 and CH2 outputs deliver the same audio signal or two separate audio signals.
The standard multi-pin interface is the same on all SR Series receiver output adapters. The housing is machined from a solid aluminum billet for ruggedness.
A 75 ohm termination of the word clock connection is applied by a jumper, installed by default at the factory. The jumper can be removed if not required by your word clock distribution system.
Lectrosonics SR-AES3 is supplied as a kit with a power cord and hardware.
