Allen & Heath has launched the new DX168 which brings even more I/O for its dLive console range. The DX168 is a portable expander rack with 16 XLR mic inputs and eight XLR line outputs. It communicates with a dLive system via Cat5e cable allowing audio transfer up to 96k over a cable run of up to 100m between the dLive system and DX168 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 C Class system allowing up to 96 remote inputs and 48 remote outputs.

The DX168 comes in a robust stage box format, with hard-wearing 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.

Allen & Heath’s live sound product manager, Ben Morgan, comments, “DX168 makes it easy to add more I/O to any dLive system, and to deploy that I/O where it’s needed most. The rugged design ensures it is capable of standing up to the demands of on-stage use week in and week out, yet retains a lightweight and highly portable form factor that can also be rack mounted to offer maximum flexibility.”
