Octadrive (discontinued)

Analogue Break-In, Break-Out Device

Larger Images

The AXYS® Octadrive is essentially a special-purpose two input, eight output audio distribution amplifier. It has been specifically designed as a line driver, to allow high quality analogue audio to be sent over long cable runs. It incorporates a number of fail-safe features, making it very reliable and suitable for use in critical life-safety situations.

As well as fixed installations, it has applications in broadcast (particularly OB) and live sound, where it is especially suited for driving stage-located amplifiers from the FOH mix position in large venues.
