Radial Engineering JX44 – No Longer Available

Active class-A guitar distro system, 4-in, 4-out with (PSU included)
MFR# R800 6500

Product Description

The Radial Engineering JX44 Air Control is a high performance guitar signal manager designed for the most demanding professional concert stages where wireless guitar systems, acoustics, effects and multiple amplifiers are used simultaneously. It features 4 inputs. Effects loops, six amplifier outputs and much more.

To ensure the highest quality signal transfer, the four instrument inputs employ Radial’s unique class-A buffering topology with 100% discreet components. Inputs A & B are augmented with Drag™ Control load correction that lets you ‘dial in’ the perfect load for the most natural tone, while inputs B &C are equipped with a trim level that let you quickly balance signal levels.

There are two effects loops: A remotely controllable ‘local’ effects loop provides an easy interface to drawer-filled pedals or multi-effects processors and the built-in Radial SGI-44 (Special version of the Studio Guitar Interface) provides a noise-free connection to-and-from distant pedalboards to distances of 100 meters. A Radial direct box works double duty as an acoustic guitar output to the PA or as a direct feed for recording. With the JX44, you can record a ‘clean guitar track’ and use the built-in Radial X-Amp in post production to re-amplify the signal to multiple amplifiers and pedals at the same time. With a JX44 in your rig, fixing a bum note for the live release is now possible.

Up to six guitar amplifiers may be used at once. Outputs 1 and 2 are single while outputs 3 and 4 are doubled-up to drive stereo amp setups or multiple stacks. All outputs are transformer isolated to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops. These also feature 180º polarity reverse switches to ensure all amps are in absolute phase. Amps can be selected from the front panel or from the JR5 remote. This five function footswitch is equipped with internal memory that let’s you store 4 amp scenes and recall them with single foot action. A second JR5 can also be used to activate or mute guitars. To further enhance stage functionality, the JX44 sports a separately buffered tuner output with mute switch for silent tuning. Signals can be muted using the front panel switch, a latching footswitch, or with the JR5 remote. You get complete control right where you want it.

Should ever a problem occur, a front panel ‘panic’ button hardwires input-A to output-1 for direct-to-amp connection. This will even work if the JX44 power goes down. With a Radial JX44 in your rig, the show ill go on!

Designed for ultimate stage functionality and pristine studio fidelity, the Radial JX44 is a powerful device that delivers tremendous signal routing capabilities in an easy to use and great sounding package!

  • Manages 4 guitars and 6 amps at once
  • 100% discreet Class-A buffered for natural tone
  • Transformer isolated to eliminate ground loops
  • Built-in direct box and signal re-amplifier

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
