Unique Switcher/Amplifier Designed for Retail Audio Demonstration Use
Hampton, New Jersey - January 17, 2011 – Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of the VS-106 Audio Switcher/Amplifier. The Kramer VS-106 is a unique switcher/amplifier for unbalanced stereo audio signals originally designed for the demonstration of speaker systems in a retail environment. The unit mechanically switches a single stereo line input to one output that can be either one of ten unpowered unbalanced audio stereo line outputs, or to one of six 8 Watt RMS per channel amplified speaker outputs. The VS-106 allows the convenient side by side demonstration and evaluation of various powered speakers (also known as amplified or active speakers) and non-powered speakers utilizing a single audio source.
The VS-106 has one unbalanced stereo audio input on RCA connectors. On the output side, the unit has six powered speaker outputs on 4-pin push-type speaker terminals and ten line level unbalanced stereo audio outputs on RCA connectors. The VS-106 therefore offers 1x10 unpowered, mechanical line-to-line switching, or 1x6 amplified line-to-speaker switching in one convenient product. The amplified outputs of this unique switcher/amplifier are controlled by a speaker volume knob on the front panel.
The VS-106 operates with a 12V DC power supply, and is housed in a standard 19” 1U rack mount size, with rack “ears” included. The VS-106 sells in the United States at a list price of $1045.00 per unit. It is currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
