The Catapult Mini RX from Radial Engineering acts as a 4-channel audio snake. It features an RJ45 input, which receives four channels of analog audio over Cat 5/6 Ethernet cables. Four male XLR outputs on cable tails allow you to plug directly into inputs of a mixer or recording interface. The housing is made of 16-gauge steel for handling any environment and is powder coated.

Radial Engineering Catapult MINI Reviews
works but has a low hum in the audio, I can correct it with a direct box, but wish I knew this before purchase.
I love these at my camera positions.
This review is for a Catapult Mini TX and RX, which I ordered together. Channel 2 is not working properly with a phantom-powered condenser mic. I tested with two brand new Ethernet cables (Cat 6a and Cat 7), both with shielded connectors as well as shielded cable (required for transmission of phantom power). I did further testing which ruled out the mic, mic cable, and audio interface as causes of the problem. I verified the issue on channel 2 with an XLR cable tester, which showed a wiring issue with pin 3. I expect better quality control from Radial. Awaiting a response from them.
Solid Radial Gear
The Radial Catapult Mini RX is working well so far with the TX4 we purchased. The cat5 cable is much more convenient than traditional audio snakes as long as you have durable cables. The unit seems well made and durable as other Radial gear.
Good quality metal construction, rugged cables, lossless sound. I'm extending over 110 feet with unshielded Cat5e and the sound quality is flawless.
