The Philex SLx Gold 2 Way is an aerial amplifier and signal booster that is designed to increase and improve TV, DAB and FM signals. It also allows you to link more than one TV to a Sky decoder box using coax cable. Like the more basic SLx B models in the SLx range the SLx Gold has an integrated digital bypass so it can be used with the SLx Link. This means that you can use the remote control to control a Sky box from the second TV. However, unlike the other SLx amplifiers, the Philex SLx Gold has both short circuit protection and surge and spike protection. This is important – as the number one cause of failure of aerial amplifiers is voltage surges.
The SLx Gold 2 Way aerial amplifier is mains powered. You can connect it to a Freeview box with RF out, a satellite receiver, you could plug your digital TV aerial into it or connect to an FM or DAB aerial. The SLx Gold 2 Way aerial amplifier then enhances any signal passed through it. It has two inputs (which can be used either for a TV or for FM or DAB digital radio) and two outputs. The two outputs mean that you can split or boost the signal so it passes to two TVs.
The Philex SLx Gold TV Amplifier is often used to complement the SLx Link.
