  • 1Description
The CX261 1 U Rackmountable Stereo Audio Mixer from Cloud USA is intended for multi-purpose areas where simple control of high-quality background music needs to be combined with a flexible range of paging options. It has six stereo line inputs with one or two microphone inputs. It features separate front panel controls for music source selection, music level and mic levels. In addition to the main stereo output, there is a transformer-isolated mono auxiliary output which is suitable for providing a MOH (Music On Hold) output to a telephone system. All outputs are balanced at line level. LINE 1 input may be switched (on the rear panel) to an alternative front-panel 3.5mm jack socket, to permit convenient connection of an MP3 player, laptop, or similar portable audio source. A front panel LED confirms its selection. This input is provided with an independent front panel gain control and LED signal level indication.

The CX261 audio mixer is fully compatible with the Cloud PM Series of paging microphones. The mixer may also be configured to operate with third-party paging systems, either mic input may be enabled via a simple short-to-ground access connection. A switchable isolating transformer configures Mic 1 input for direct connection to a telephone system, enabling paging messages to originate from an extension. Mic-over-music priority (Automatic Voice-Over) may be selected by internal jumper, and may be triggered either by the access connector or automatically by a mic signal (VOX mode). Additionally, Mic 1 may be set to have priority over Mic 2. Bi-color LEDs indicating signal level are fitted to the rear panel to aid mic gain adjustment.
The Line 6 input may be set to have priority over any other selected music input to facilitate connection of a jukebox, digital sound store, or similar device. One of three release times (up to 12 seconds) may be selected by internal jumper, to unobtrusively restore the original music source. A Music Mute Input is provided, which may permit compliance with local Fire Authority regulations, the microphone inputs remain active when the Music Mute is applied.
