NEUTRIK® INTRODUCES THE WORLD’S FIRST UNISEX XLR, CONVERTCON®, AT AES 2008

ConvertCon NC3FM-C_femaleSAN FRANCISCO, CA – How many times have you reached for a cable only to find it has the wrong XLR connector on the other end? In direct response to high professional and consumer demand, Neutrik, designer and manufacturer of the XX series XLR cable connector, introduces the world’s first unisex 3-pin XLR connector, convertCON®, at AES 2008 (Booth 809).

convertCON (NC3FM-C) is a new 3-pin male and female cable connector in a single housing. convertCON is also available with black chrome housing and gold contacts (NC3FM-C-B). By simply sliding the housing back and forth, convertCON is transformed from a male to female connector. This new male/female cable end XLR allows for use of one connector, as it can mate with either a male or female 3-pin XLR.

convertCON shares some of the features and benefits of Neutrik’s best-selling XLR XX series. convertCON also features an improved chuck type strain relief that provides higher pull-out force and makes assembly easier and faster. convertCON’s rugged zinc die cast shell ensures a long lasting and dependable connection, while its sleek and ergonomic design makes it convenient and easy to handle.

“Designing and manufacturing a unisex XLR connector was the natural next step for Neutrik,? says Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. “convertCON was specifically designed to offer the ultimate in convenience to our consumers. We really try to listen to our consumers’ feedback – from the top integrators in the industry to each individual user – a unisex XLR connector was a consistent request that we have brought to reality.?

Neutrik manufactures a wide array of XLR connectors and receptacles, jacks and plugs, speaker connectors and accessories for the professional audio industry. Neutrik USA is located at 195 Lehigh Avenue, Lakewood, NJ 08701.
