Specifications

The Apex PE133MkII has an electronically balanced input with an impedance of 10kohm on each leg, overload point of +22dBu and CMRR or better than 65dB within the audio band. Pin 2 of the XLR is hot according to the internationally recognised standard.

The output is electronically balanced, simulating a transformer output in that pin 3 should be grounded when driving an unbalanced input. Maximum output is +21dBu into 600 ohms with an output impedance of 51 ohms.
