Balanced Line Drivers & Line Drivers

Recently introduced from THAT Corporation are a line of improved output stages which, like their InGenius line receiver counterparts, provide a bona fide improvement over existing balanced interconnect technology.

The THAT1606 and 1646 use OutSmarts technology, a dual feedback-loop design that prevents the excessive ground currents typical of conventional cross-coupled output stages when clipping into single-ended loads. Both models exhibit low noise and distortion, high slew rate, stability under difficult loads, wide output swing, and have outputs which are short-circuit protected.
