Allen & Heath Go 'Everything I/O' With New Remote Audio Expanders




Allen & Heath continues to expand its ‘Everything I/O’ ecosystem with the addition of two new remote audio expanders, the GX4816 and the DX012.

Addressing customer demands for a high-channel-count remote expander, the 96kHz GX4816 is a central hub for all your stage I/O, with a single cable link to SQ or dLive systems. Featuring 48 dLive mic preamps and 16 XLR outputs in a 4U chassis, GX4816 unlocks new I/O possibilities with 2 DX ports provided for further expansion or connection to a ME personal mixing system.

Perfect for feeding IEMs and amplifier racks, the DX012 is a 1U output expander, once again for SQ or dLive systems. With flexible switching, its 12 XLR outputs are configurable as 12 analogue, 8 analogue + 4 stereo AES, or 4 analogue + 8 stereo AES outputs. A second DX012, DX168 or DX164-W can be cascaded to the unit. Alternatively, a redundant connection can be made to compatible hardware.

The new units add to an already extensive array of I/O options, including the 48kHz AR2412, AR84 and AB168 audio racks for Qu and SQ digital mixers; the modular DX32 rack, the portable DX168 and the wall-mount DX164-W for SQ and dLive systems; and the recently introduced, Dante enabled DT168 and DT164-W. Larger systems can also be facilitated by the DX Hub expander.

“Convenience is key”, comments Allen & Heath’s Head of Product, Nic Beretta. “Many of our customers have been asking for an all-in-one, 48 input packages to reduce complexity and cabling on stage. The GX4816 does that and is also a bridge to our ME personal mixing system. Similarly, the DX012 allows users and installers to deploy outputs precisely where needed, for example side stage, feeding amp racks or IEM transmitters while minimizing analogue runs.”

“While our mixers tend to hog the spotlight, our commitment to meeting a diverse range of I/O requirements is proving a real success with our users,” adds Rob Clark, Allen & Heath’s Managing Director. “From owner/operators who need compact, flexible solutions, through to rental companies who value our approach to common I/O across our product ranges and our strong Dante integration, we’re looking forward to bringing further innovations to this market.”
