GEPCO G37 SERIES
Twelve-channel DT12 connectors feature a new hard anodized aluminum backshell that locks in place with two set screws into a series of castellations; the set screws and castellation prevent accidental loosening of the connector shell, therefore extending the operating life; the male connector shell is constructed from stainless steel to prevent damage and keyway wear.
Capable of recording up to 7.1 channels of discrete surround sound; now features enhanced low frequency effects (LFE); with the enhanced LFE, it effectively permits a higher output level of deep bass information without imposing on the performance or levels of the rest of the system.
