Rolls MB15b overview

  • 1Description

The Rolls MB15b ProMatch is an inexpensive line level audio device that converts consumer level stereo RCA signals to balanced XLR professional line level signals, and vice versa. The unit is useful for video duplication and audio recording studio applications; for example, connecting a consumer VCR to a professional video deck, or an off-the-shelf CD player to a professional mixing console or recorder.

The MB15b ProMatch has 2 XLR inputs and stereo RCA outputs on one side, labeled 1, and stereo RCA inputs and 2 XLR outputs on the other side, labeled 2. Each side has stereo level controls, and an LED indicates that power is applied to the unit.

Additionally, the unit functions as a balanced XLR line level control. By adding a stereo pair of jumper cables between the 4 RCA jacks (connecting ins to outs), the level controls may be inserted into any balanced XLR line.

Bidirectional line level audio signal converter and stereo direct box converts from consumer to professional and professional to consumer levels
Allows for connection of consumer level products such as camcorders, CD and cassette players to professional level recorders, mixing consoles and signal processors
Standard stereo XLR and RCA connectors, dedicated stereo level control knobs for inputs and outputs
Double duty functionality as balanced inline level control, achieved by patching RCA inputs and outputs together

    Rolls MB15b reviews

    MB15b Promatch 2-Way Stereo Converter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multibox magic Great gadget for ENG videographers using HDV camcorders. We use it to connect to sat trucks and multi boxes in news-pool situations. The outputs are almost always +4 dbu professional line level, and the HDV camcorders are all consumer, -10dBv line inputs. This inexpensive but capable gadget does the conversion and provides attenuation or amplification as needed. It is bi-directional, so we can feed takes from a camcorder direct to the sat truck inputs, or receive from them. Neat, compact, inexpensive. Great gadget. Expertise: Multimedia producer for newspaper website Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Various passive attenuators Items I Recommend: XLR and RCA cables, headphones

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for home theater -> Pro amp I have a home theater where 3 of the seats have Buttkicker tactile transducers, for those earth quaking explosions etc. Tactile transducers require a lot of wattage from your amp, so a pro amp suited me best (lots of power, drive low ohms, cheaper per watt). However, since my home theater receiver only had the typical -10 dB output on the sub-woofer channel, I needed something to bring it up to the +4 dB required by the professional amp. This box is an affordable way to integrate professional audio equipment into your home theater. No fuss, just works. Just be careful when you now do the channel balancing, since you'll have three places to adjust the audio level, 1) the receiver, 2) the MB15b Promatch, and 3) the amplifiers input gain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product, very versatile I used this unit to provide needed gain and to interface an internet streaming box to a digital signal processor which provides modulation to a mono low power (30 watts) FM transmitter. I needed two independent mono amplifiers so I modified both section 1 and section 2 of the unit. I isolated the two rear gangs of the level 1 and the level 2 controls, from their circuits and modified the wiring so that the level 1 control independently controls one mono amplifier, while the level 2 control still independently controls the other mono amplifier. It would be nice if a switch could be included that would accomplish what I have done, without the need to modify the circuit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DO NOT leave home without one of these! This will make the 7th MB15 I now have in my kit. This little swiss army knife allows me to work around mis-communications in the planning phase. It is also very handy to deal with low audio levels as this unit is active AND it works wonderfully as a pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and stable It is very simple and easy to use. The function is limited, converting the audio signal from Unbalanced to balanced and in the opposite way but It works totally fine my use. The price is very affordable, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional product for all users Promatch MB 15b, manufactured by Rolls, is a high-quality product that enables connectivity between amateur, mid-level professional, and professional stereo equipment. The unit is a solid performer; it does not introduce hum or distortion when used with high-quality cables. Two units are needed for stereo connectivity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price and functionality I got this to level out mixer audio going into my video camera. Works great. My only complaint is this one goes up to 10. I wish mine went up to 11 but it only goes up to 10. But seriously, it could use a little more volume range. Other than that it's great!
