Peer Review- Sigma Electronics VDA26 Plattsburgh NY

Two outstanding features of this handy, standalone, compact 1x6 composite video distribution amplifier (VDA) are its ruggedness and reliability. The Sigma Electronics VDA26 available in Plattsburgh is the size of a medium-thickness paperback book. Besides being light and portable, three of these units will mount side by side in an optional factory rack frame.

Peer Review- Sigma Electronics VDA26

My Pick:

Sigma Electronics VDA26 composite video distribution amplifier,

What I Like About It:

Two outstanding features of this handy, standalone, compact 1x6 composite video distribution amplifier (VDA) are its ruggedness and reliability. The Sigma Electronics VDA26 is the size of a medium-thickness paperback book. Besides being light and portable, three of these units will mount side by side in an optional factory rack frame.

I particularly like the amplifier's all-metal construction, which helps shield against stray EMI/RFI leakage — a common nuisance with the SMPS (switch mode power supply) on older light dimmer packs. I also prefer the professional-grounded, three-wire AC cord instead of the wall-wart system.

I Would Change:

About the only thing I could ask for would be to add an auto-terminating 75-ohm looping input to the VDA26. Some other units require sliding a switch to terminate, while this model requires the user to add a BNC-type terminator to be manually connected for proper loading of the signal if you're not going to loop it.

Where I Used It:

I frequently use the Sigma Electronics VDA26 for concerts at the Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center in Gilford, NH.
