Using a 4-port distribution amp with an antenna. What is the difference between Electroline EDA-2400 and EDA-UG2402? The 2402 is a unity gain amp with zero loss. Not sure about the distinction. Just a generic question, non-location specific. Which would work better with OTA antenna?
The difference is the amount of gain that the internal amplifier provides. On the EDA-UG2402, the amplifier gain is set to be equal to the splitter loss. That is, the signal level on the output ports is equal to the signal level on the input port.
On the EDA-2400, the internal amplifier has more gain and the signal level on the output ports is 8 dB greater than the signal level on the input port.
The EDA-UG2402 is typically used when you're building a large (hundreds of outlets) distribution system and you have splitters connected back to back.
The EDA-2400 is used when there are longer cables attached to the output ports. The 8 dB gain compensates for the loss of the longer output cables. This is the typical home installation.
