ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 14, 2010 ― The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, introduces its new AC-Audio Composite Cable at Winter NAMM 2010 (Booth 4558 Hall C). This unique cable offers both AC power and two-channels of digital audio within the same outer jacket. The cable is designed to be used with most new, professional-quality, self-powered speaker PA systems that provide both AC power and input signals simultaneously.
The AC cable portion consists of three 14GA conductors with a rugged PVC outer jacket, which is separate from the audio channels. This enables users to split the AC power and digital audio while maintaining a high quality AC power run. The two digital audio channels are designed under AES/EBU standards and accommodate both digital and analog audio signals.
The cable is available in bulk or pre-terminated by RapcoHorizon and can be equipped with a variety of connector combinations including Neutrik Power-Con AC connectors, Edison Male or Female plugs and Hubble twit lock connectors. The digital audio channels are terminated with Neutrik NC3FXX and NC3MXX professional XLR connectors.
“Our new AC-Audio cable was designed with quality in mind,” says Darius Seabaugh, vice president of marketing at The RapcoHorizon Company. “By individually jacketing the AC separate from the audio, the consumer has the most versatile configuration available that can accommodate nearly every application.”
The RapcoHorizon Company, located in Jackson, Missouri, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of audio, video, home theater, data and telecommunications cable in both bulk wire and assemblies. Used worldwide by concert touring sound companies, video and sound contractors, recording studios, system integrators, audiophiles and musicians, The RapcoHorizon Company’s products provide optimal flexibility and premium performance. The company’s state-of-the-art Custom Shop can modify existing products or build new devices to meet any need.
