New York, NY (June 6, 2017)—Allen & Heath has added on to its dLive digital mixing system with the debut of the new portable DX168 expander rack.
DX168 features 16 XLR mic inputs and 8 XLR line outputs, and communicates with the dLive system via Allen & Heath’s proprietary 96 kHz DX protocol over Cat 5e cable, allowing cable runs of up to 100 meters between the dLive system and the unit.
In “Redundant” mode, dual cable redundant connections can be made to dLive S Class hardware as well as non-redundant single cable connections to S Class and C Class systems. Alternatively, in “Cascade” mode (available in upcoming firmware 1.60), up to six DX168 units can be connected to any dLive S Class or dLive C Class system, allowing up to 96 remote inputs and 48 remote outputs.
The DX168 stage box-style enclosure includes rubber bumpers and a carry handle for direct placement on the stage floor. An optional rackmount kit allows the unit to be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack.
