How is MAXPRO8000 series better than MAXPRO7000 series?
- MAXLINK II for easy interfacing with the new SE8000 DSP+ without soldering
- MPX cable no longer needed for connection to new stereo encoders (Such as SE8000 DSP+).
- VU meter signals wired through MAXLINK II and LCD display flat cable which simplifies wiring considerably
- Further Improved S/N ratio across the band, designed for maximum spurious signal rejection (>80dBc). Some high-end customers appreciate this feature. Depending on operating frequency dBc can be >95dB down relative to the carrier.
- Self-resetting electronic PTC fuse (no more pesky fuse replacements).
