Radial Engineering Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, is now shipping the JR2-DT ($110 MSRP), a dual function control switch that enables the user to A/B toggle devices, such as the Radial SW4 and SW8, from the comfort of a desktop position, or to remotely mute the system.
The compact JR2-DT features choice of XLR and ¼-inch remote outputs to suit various setups. There are two switches on the top panel: one switch is labeled A or B, and the other switch is labeled Mute. Each switch is a latching type that stays engaged until it is depressed a second time. Onboard LEDs illuminate the unit's status and derive their power from the Radial device that is connected, eliminating the need for batteries or local power supply. Construction is 16-gauge steel with powder coated finish. The JR2-DT is made in Canada and comes with a 3-year transferable warranty.
