The unit includes phantom power and battery supplies as standard. Should the phantom power from the console fail or be accidentally switched off, the AR-133 automatically switches over to the internal 9V battery providing uninterrupted use. The unit is housed in a rugged aluminium extrusion case, with robust polyurethane end-cheeks which give the AR-133 a very distinctive look.

Input connectors are both 1/4" jack sockets and an XLR socket, the latter meaning that the AR-133 can be used to convert unbalanced signals to a balanced output on XLRs throughout. The arched case allows cables to run back underneath the unit from the end for neat cable management.

Input attenuation is 0, -20 or -40dB, making the box suitable for instrument, line or amplifier levels on inputs. On the output side, a ground-lift switch is provided for quick solutions to ground-loop problems.


  • Switchable input attenuation:

  • 0dB for guitar-type pickups

  • -20dB for line level signals

  • -40dB for speaker feeds

  • Matches the level and impedance with unity gain without loading the source

  • Can drive signals up long cable lengths

  • Powered from console phantom power or internal battery

  • Automatic switchover to battery if phantom power fails

  • Parallel Link Jack output to feed amplifiers directly

  • Parallel XLR input for converting unbalanced outputs to balanced lines
