Splitting the signal to multiple TVs or converter boxes will result in a certain amount of signal loss. The 8-Output HDTV Distribution Amplifier will boost signal strength for reliable picture quality and reception. Designed for both home and professional use, the CDA8 distribution amplifier can also be used when 50 feet or more of coaxial cable is used between the antenna and the TV or converter box. Distribution amplifiers counter this loss by boosting the available signal from the coaxial cable coming from the TV antenna. Our CDA8 Distribution Amplifier is commonly used in homes and businesses where the TV antenna needs to distribute signals to as many as eight TVs without impacting the signal quality.

Kit includes everything you need to get started:
• Low-Noise 8-Output HDTV Distribution Amplifier
• Power Supply, 15V DC with Overload Protection
• One 40in. High-Performance Coaxial Cable
• Assembly and Installation Instructions

For Indoor and Outdoor Use
This distribution amplifier is recommended for indoor use, but can be used outdoors. For outdoor use, we recommend using a watertight F-connector along with weather boots to protect the connections from the environment.

Helpful tips: If installing outdoors, you will need a power inserter to allow the included power supply to share the coaxial cable connected to the designated output show on the Distribution Amplifier. You should also consider 75 Ohm F-termination caps for any unused outputs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was time to cut the cord to cable tv I recently bought the Clearstream 2v outdoor antenna. When I connected it to our main tv and ran the channel search I could not believe how many free hd channels I was getting, over 60! Then I started adding tv's and loosing channels. I called Antennas Direct for help. Aurora answered my call and with her help and knowledge of their products pointed me to get the 8-Output TV/CATV Distribution Amplifier. Now I have all of our tv's working with fantastic picture quality. It is a very simple installation and best of all no more monthly cable tv bills to pay! Thanks Antennas Direct and especially Aurora for answering my call!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reception on all of my TV's I bought this 8 output TV/CATV Distribution Amplifier because I have 7 TV's in my house that I was feeding. This is a great piece of equipment to add to your list if your feeding this amount of TV's. The reception on all of my TV's is great. I have some long runs of coaxial cable and it doesn't even flicker at all. Every channel that I get comes in crystal clear. I would highly recommend this unit without any hesitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a great job - for its intended purpose I've only used 2 of the 8 ports so far, capping off the others with terminators, but see no degradation when splitting the output of my antenna with this splitter. Using a passive splitter resulted in a loss of channels at both TV's. The only hope I had that was not met was that this would actually boost the signal some, but the marginal channels with the antenna connected directly to a single TV remain marginal with this. So don't expect it to act as a pre-amp and boost things. For that I think you still need a pre-amp at the antenna.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent antenna I get all the channels. Channel 2 was my primary concern. All channels are in HD. It was easy to install and with your amplifier I have local channels through out my whole house. I am very pleased and you are saving me a lot of money. Your support team is top notch. They helped throughout the installation process. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and support I was not sure what equipment to get, had lots of questions about what would work best for a rooftop antenna to support multiple units in a condo. Katie was a great help, with detailed answers and links to show the best setup for my situation. After receiving the equipment, I still had questions about setup, location, etc. All questions were answered quickly and with helpful details. The staff at Antennas Direct really know their stuff, and they deal very well with customers.
