S2 Digital I/O Analogue Radio Broadcast Mixer

Sonifex S2 Mixer

Sonifex S2 Mixer - Features

S2 is a new breed of radio broadcast mixer. Using the latest technology components, S2 offers digital audio quality with analogue reliability in a modular format. S2 has both AES/EBU digital and analogue input channels, together with simultaneous analogue and AES/EBU digital outputs.

Following on from the Sovereign range of audio mixers, S2 combines all the features needed of a radio broadcast mixer in a stylish, flush-mounting chassis : a wide range of input and output channels, PFL/cue, fader-start operation of equipment, automatic monitor muting on mic-live, light switching remote outputs, optional EQ on input modules, gram amp input options and 2 main audio buses, allowing you to broadcast on the PRG bus while recording on the AUD bus, with bus output selection on each module.

Sonifex S2 Mixer - Innovative Design

  • The S2 chassis is available in 5 module width sections, allowing 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 module width mixers. This means S2 can be used for small newsrooms or large on-air situations. An optional bus cable allows two mixers to be combined in a split-desk configuration.
  • Modular "pop-up" input and output channels means that the mixer can be maintained simply and quickly. Input channels can be individually removed and repaired whilst still on-air.
  • The angle of the meterbridge can be varied and set for best viewing position.
  • Any module can be in any position so that customizing the mixer for your own purposes is easy.
  • Large back-lit buttons allow you to see the status of the mixer at all times.
  • The fitted rear panel hides all cable connections but can be simply unclipped and reclipped for maintenance.
  • The modular design of the desk gives you the flexibility to expand it at a later date. You can even add another S2 mixer and link them together with a bus connector cable to allow for split desk configurations.

Sonifex S2 Mixer - Superb audio quality and unquestionable reliability

  • The S2 uses the latest Crystal semiconductor technology to allow input and output of digital audio signals up to 24 bit, 96kHz sample rate.
  • The analogue signal paths use low noise circuitry to provide superb audio performance well capable of satisfying radio listeners worldwide.
  • The high reliability and build quality of S2 minimises the chance of failure, avoiding lost air-time. Each module is individually checked twice before being assembled into the finished chassis and the whole unit is tested before shipping.
  • ALPS long throw 100mm faders give a smooth, repeatable response and the XLR Neutrik connectors used are an industry standard.
  • The use of VCA's controlled by the faders ensures tight stereo tracking and eliminates mechanical and electronic noise.
  • S2 has a separate 2U power supply providing regulated, ripple-free power to the mixer.
  • High quality stainless steel is used for the chassis and screws to prevent corrosion in high humidity environments.
