Compact battery-operated DSP noise cancelling unit ideal for portable use, The New Compact In-Line module measures just 125 x 70 x 37 mm, and is the latest addition to the range of DSP noise cancelling products.
This small compact battery-operated handheld unit is ideal for portable use and includes the latest bhi dual channel/stereo DSP noise cancelling technology. It is designed to be used with a pair of stereo headphones, but will also drive a mono loudspeaker or a pair of powered stereo speakers.
The Compact In-Line module is powered by two AA alkaline or NiMH batteries or can be powered from a separate DC supply (power lead supplied). The module's functions are microprocessor controlled and the unit can accept mono or stereo signals. It has separate speaker level and line-level inputs with two separate rotary encoder control with pushbutton action for filter level selection, power on/off, volume control and stereo/mono signal selection. You simply adjust the controls to suit your current noisy conditions. This module is suitable for use on all radios and receivers including software-defined radios (SDR).

"The noise elimination achieved was very worthwhile and the unit was easy to use. As its name suggests the Compact In-Line is very compact and the integrated battery power facility makes it ideal for use on holiday or for a spot of hilltop listening"
Mike Richards G4WNC - Radio User magazine,
"I thought you might enjoy seeing your Compact In-Line installed in my K3 and KX3 Station. It is sitting on top of a small audio amplifier (to the right of the KX3) which powers the two speakers. It works GREAT! (Possibly even better than your mono units.) Makes the general radio and atmospheric noise level drop away which, in turn, makes listening so much more enjoyable. Any SWL listener would be thrilled with the improvement, as well."
“I had never tried “stereo” audio from my rigs until getting the Compact In-Line. There is a significant increase in listening enjoyment by using stereo audio. The Compact In-Line greatly reduces the audio “hiss” and makes the audio generally quieter and much easier to listen to.”
“The setup of the Compact In-Line is very intuitive, albeit after a brief reading of the information sheet. All changes in volume and processing are indicated audibly by means of beep tones. Changes in the processing level show as variations in audio beep frequency, e.g. increases in processor levels are conveyed by increases in the frequency of the tone produced. Very easy to follow.” James Robbins N1JR.
