Balanced XLR mic-level outputs are available for connection to a mic preamplifier for archiving or sampling in the studio, and -10dB consumer line-level outputs are also provided to connect to home stereo equipment. The J33 can also be used in a live performance environment, offering an improved interface for DJs to connect to the PA system.
