The adapter sports a USB-C output and a 3.5mm headphone jack for direct monitoring. LED indicators let you know the status of operation (green for On, yellow for Error, red for Mute). The MVX2U features automatic level adjustment right out of the box, so you don't have touch a thing for instant setup. And if that's not enough, you also get remote configuration over USB via the free MOTIV desktop app.
