The XA-1 + XA-2 FASLINK™ Adapter Combo Pack allows you to connect the MFC (Ethernet/EtherCON) port of an Axe-Fx II (original or Mark II) to the Axe-Fx/Expansion (Ethernet/EtherCON) port of an MFC-101 (original or Mark II.)
In short, if neither of your units has a FASLINK port, this package will allow you to connect them over FASLINK.
The XA-1 features a XLR Female connector and a Ethernet/EtherCON female connector. The XA-2 features a XLR Male connector and a Ethernet/EtherCON female connector.
Benefits of FASLINK™ include:
FASLINK™ powers the MFC-101 from the Axe-Fx without a "wall wart" AC Adapter.
XLR Cables are more readily available than network cables.
XLR Cable lengths of up to 100' are supported.
XLR Cables are more resistant to damage on stage or in a road case.
FASLINK™ Adapters are ultra-portable (1.75" x 1.5" x 3.3", @ 4.1 oz.)
