Still wondering if you need studio-grade I/O for your system? Check uit Quincas Moreira's new video on RX2 and TX2!

hi Joran, may I ask when you anticipate restocks for these at your US distributors? Happy joranalogue user here :)

New units are in production now (as is a huge number of modules in the rest of the series) and all dealers will be restocked over the next few weeks.

Hey, I'm unable to find some technical detail related to the Receive 2:

Do you have ideas on:

-What is the total harmonic distortion plus noise?
-Input impedance (i know it is DC coupled)?
-Max input level point to point?

I'm considering options for modules that would transform 2 x balanced line level signals to eurorack level.
I currently have a really cheap Erica synths Pico Input which really destroys a sound if you have to use lots of gain with it.

There arent a lot of options and the Receive 2 seems to be very shielded and has lots of gain, but i'm not looking to use it with microphones.

Though, I would guess that the biggest problem with noise in bringing signals to eurorack happens when the input module amplifies the noise that is already present in the the output of the sound card (instead of the noise it adds itself.)

THD+N is essentially non-existent, even at high gain. I now have sensitive enough gear to measure this, but no time to run these tests at the moment I'm afraid. The differential input impedance is 48 kΩ (see also manual), common-mode impedance approaches infinity, just like a transformer. It'll handle signals right up to the Eurorack power rails without issues, so 24 Vpp.

Cheers for that!
