Sonifex CM-AESX3

The Sonifex CM-AESX3 is a passive splitter (one-to-three) housed in a small but robust aluminium box. It is designed to split a single AES3 digital audio source to up to three destinations, using Neutrik XLR connectors. The CM-AESX3 requires no power to operate, ensuring your audio remains connected from source to destination(s) without interruption from power failures.

The CM-AESX3 provides solutions to a range of digital signal distribution problems, where correct termination is essential to maintain signal integrity. The input signal is split through high quality transformers, and 110Ω termination can be applied, if desired, to unconnected outputs.

Specifications

Cable Drive Capability: The table below sets out the minimum signal amplitude required to drive 100m (cumulative) of 110Ω twisted pair cable, based on the sample rate of the digital audio:

Sample Rate Minimum Signal Amplitude

  • 32kHz: *2Vpk-pk
  • 44.1kHz: *2Vpk-pk
  • 48kHz: *2Vpk-pk
  • 88.2kHz: 5Vpk-pk
  • 96kHz: 5Vpk-pk

* Minimum of 2Vpk-pk is defined by the AES3 format specification.
