Radial Nuance Select studio monitor controller

Nuance Select monitor controller

Radial has introduced the Nuance Select, a high-end studio monitor controller. This piece of audio wizardry boasts ultra-low noise and a crystal-clear signal path, allowing for flawless switching between two audio sources and two sets of powered speakers. 

The Nuance Select is equipped with a large master level control, two built-in headphone amplifiers, and illuminated switches. With its large chrome level controls for the master and headphone outputs, switching between two sets of speakers is a breeze. An aux output is provided for connecting to headphone amplifiers or other external devices. 

The Nuance Select also has a subwoofer output that can be activated as needed, along with Mono, Mute, and Dim switches for added control. Headphone outputs can be independently assigned to either set of stereo inputs, perfect for monitoring a cue mix when recording.

New Catapult Rack units

Radial is also making waves with its Catapult line of analogue audio over Cat 5 cable units. The new single rack-mounted Catapult TX and Catapult RX offer 12 channels of audio over Cat 5 cable, essentially cramming the equivalent of three of Radial’s Catapult 4-channel TX and RX boxes into a single rack space unit.

Radial Catapult Rack RX and TX devices.

Each unit has 12 balanced connections, with three Cat 5 output ports available for sending audio. The Catapult Rack TX has 12 locking XLR female connectors, and six EtherCON locking RJ45 connectors. The Catapult Rack RX features 12 XLR male outputs along with the RJ45 connections. 

Fully compatible with all Radial Catapult modules, including transformer isolated versions and Radial's Catapult Mini 4-channel unit, both offer reversible rack ears for mounting with either the XLR or the Cat 5 connections easily accessible. Secure connections are ensured with locking Neutrik EtherCON ruggedized connectors.

Power 1 and Power 2 now in 220-240V versions

Finally, Radial has announced 220-240V versions of its popular Power 1 and Power 2 power units. These units offer high-quality power supply and surge suppressor solutions for countries that operate on the 220-240 power grid, including UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, and numerous other countries.

Both units feature the same level of surge suppression as found in Radial’s 110V Power 1 and Power 2 units. They also feature high-quality MOVs made in the USA that offer superior protection over other types of units. 

The Power 1 features three front panel and 10 rear panel IEC outlets for powering equipment, with front panel outlets always on. a USB charging port on the front panel is included with a protection circuit to prevent damage to connected devices.

The Power 2 boasts a slide-out LED tray with multiple color options available on the LED lights for viewing equipment in lower racks. Additional features include an always-on front panel outlet, 10 rear panel IEC outlets in two banks of five, a USB charging port on front panel, and a protection circuit to prevent damage to connected devices.
