The MuxLab Stereo Hi-Fi Balun 500028 carries an unbalanced signal from an analog audio source, like a DVD player, to a hi-fi amplifier system so as to achieve hi-fi sound quality for the analog source.

Such a setup requires two Balun units. Each connects to its source by two integrated 6" RCA-M cables, and the two units connect by Cat5, over which the analog signal is carried.

The Balun allows a simple, neat and affordable way of getting a hi-fi frequency response.

        Comments about MuxLab Stereo Hi-Fi Balun 500028:

        I used two of these baluns to connect a Buttkicker transducer attached to the sofa in my home theatre to the subwoofer output of my AVR over CAT5. They work well, and only requires simple plug and play operation. This allowed me to use the existing CAT5 in my home to connect the second sub, so I didn't have to spend a ton of time fishing and running new cable to support the new sub. So while these products are seemingly expensive for a passive device, if you already have the UTP infrastructure available you can save a lot of time and effort using them instead of pulling new cables. Look for other Muxlab baluns which will allow you to run all kinds of things across UTP. (eg. CCTV, audio, video, hdmi, component video, stereo, vga ect.)
