    With added functionality and enhanced audio performance, the BSS AR-133 has been designed to be more affordable for musicians, studios and PA companies.
    The unit includes phantom power and battery supplies as standard. Should the phantom power from the console fail or be accidentally switched off, the BSS AR-133 automatically switches over to the internal 9V battery providing uninterrupted use. The unit is housed in a rugged aluminium extrusion case, with robust polyurethane end-cheeks which give the BSS AR-133 a very distinctive look. Input connectors are both 1/4 inch jack sockets and an XLR socket, the latter meaning that the BSS AR-133 can be used to convert unbalanced signals to a balanced output on XLRs throughout.
    The arched case allows cables to run back underneath the unit from the end for neat cable management. Input attenuation is 0, -20 or -40dB, making the box suitable for instrument, line or amplifier levels on inputs. On the output side, a ground-lift switch is provided for quick solutions to ground-loop problems.
    The BSS AR-133 uses an enhanced version of the same audio path as the AR-116, now regarded by many people as a reference standard. The sound quality is legendary, particularly on acoustic and bass guitars. Numerous applications can be satisfied by the BSS AR-133. For example, as well as the traditional guitar use, the BSS AR-133 can be used with keyboards, DJ consoles, amplifier outputs, and other electronic sources. An additional bonus is the ability to use the BSS AR-133 as an active balancing device.

    Additional features include:
    Switchable input attenuation
    0dB for guitar-type pickups
    -20dB for line level signals
    -40dB for speaker feeds
    Parallel Link Jack output to feed amplifiers directly
    Parallel XLR input for converting unbalanced outputs
