ALLEN & HEATH - EVERYTHING I/O

Allen & Heath släpper GX4816 och DX012, två nya expanderboxar för dLive och SQ.

GR4816

48 XLR Input / 16 XLR Output Portable GX Expander w/ DX Sockets

 

GX4816 is a 96kHz audio expander that provides high-input-count remote expansion for SQ and dLive* mixing systems.

*dLive compatibility due in Firmware V1.9

Each GX4816 is loaded with 48 dLive mic preamps with independent Phantom Power LED indicators, plus 16 XLR line outputs. Additionally, 2 DX ports are provided for connection to up to 4 DX Expanders for further I/O expansion. Connection to a ME Personal Mixing System is possible via the DX2 socket.

GX4816 connects via a single Cat5e cable to an SLink socket on a SQ, or to a gigaACE audio network card on a dLive system.

Connection to DX Expanders and the ME Personal Mixing System is also over Cat5e cable.

DX012

12 XLR Output Analogue/AES Portable DX Expander

 Need to get more out of your system? DX012 provides remote output expansion for SQ and dLive.
Perfect for feeding IEM systems and amplifier racks, DX012 offers both analogue and AES digital output options in a compact 1U form factor.

 

Each DX012 provides 12 XLR outputs, configurable as:

  • 12 analogue line outputs
  • 8 analogue line outputs + 4 stereo AES outputs
  • 4 analogue line outputs + 8 stereo AES outputs

 

The DX012 connects via a single Cat5e cable to the dLive Surface, dLive MixRack, SQ mixer or upstream DX expander via a secure EtherCon port.

A second locking EtherCon port is provided for redundant connection to compatible hardware, or for daisy-chaining to a downstream DX expander for additional remote I/O.
