Radial Engineering announces the ChainDrive 1x4 distro and line driver, the latest in the company's range of 500 series modules.
The ChainDrive is a single-wide audio distribution module that accepts either a balanced or unbalanced source via the 500 series power rack input and distributes the signal to four front-panel ¼" TRS outputs. Four front panel level controls let you optimize signal-to-noise levels. For those equipped with a Radial Workhorse, the Omniport is set up as an unbalanced to balanced converter for manipulating hi-Z signals in the pro-audio domain. The ChainDrive can also distribute a full stereo program using TRS connectors following the tip-left, ring-right, sleeve-ground convention.
Once connected, the ChainDrive lets you create exciting signal chains such as multi-band compression, feeding several guitar amps and effects simultaneously, or taking a stereo program and sending it to various digital processors, dynamic controllers and effects at the same time.
The ChainDrive is built with a 14 gauge steel outer casing with a galvalume shield to protect the circuit board. Each potentiometer is outfitted with a steel shaft and output jacks made from glass-filled nylon with nickel-silver contacts. Full surface ground plane with double sided solder points are included.

The ChainDrive is now shipping. Estimated retail price: $350 USD.
