Radial Ships the Catapult Rack TX and RX


Radial Engineering announced it’s shipping the Catapult Rack TX and Catapult Rack RX. The Catapult Rack TX and RX expand Radial’s line of audio over Cat 5 cable units, providing a simpler way to handle analog audio distribution across significant distances.

The company says the Catapult Rack TX and RX transform three standard Cat 5 or Cat 6 Ethernet cables into a passive 12-channel audio snake. This eliminates bulky, expensive traditional snakes while maintaining pristine sound quality. Perfect for both stage and studio, Radial says the Catapult TX and RX single rackspace units allow effortless transmission of mic and line-level signals with zero signal loss, interference, or digital conversion required. The versatile design enables seamless integration with other Radial audio over Cat 5/6 modules.

Built with Radial’s “signature ruggedness,” the company says the Catapult TX and RX boast durable steel enclosures, Neutrik etherCON connectors for secure cable locking and reversible rack ears for easy placement in any setup. The ground lift function on each bank of XLRs minimizes unwanted noise, ensuring optimal signal clarity even over long runs
