DL152 is a 5U 19″ fixed-configuration rack I/O unit with 24 line level outputs and delivers legendary MIDAS sound quality utilising our time-tested and road-proven technologies. Featuring two AES50 network ports providing dual redundancy, the DL152 is the ideal partner to the MIDAS M32, PRO1, PRO2C and PRO2 digital consoles, enabling a digital snake connection from Front of House to stage.

Digital Audio Networking

SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK simultaneously provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use – to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.

DL152 is compatible with all MIDAS digital consoles and audio system engines, as well as with any other AES50-equipped devices.

High Output Drive Line Outputs with Mute

DL152 features 24 active servo-balanced low impedance line level outputs with high output current capability for driving long cable runs.

The outputs feature an automatic mute facility if the audio signal path is muted by the mixing console operator, and individual LED indicators are provided for each output connector.

96 kHz or 48 kHz Operation

DL152 supports multiple sample rates for the AES50 connections – 96 kHz for use with MIDAS PRO Series, and 48 kHz for use with MIDAS M32 Series.

Remote Console or Front Panel Control

All configuration settings for DL152 can be set either remotely from the mixing console, or directly via the intuitive and easy to understand front panel. DL152 features a front panel LCD display with intuitive menu navigation for all configuration options with LED status indicators, which provide clear feedback of operational status over wide viewing angles and distances. Clear indication is provided showing power supply output rail condition and AES50 and Ethernet network connection status and activity.

Built for the Road

Featuring a rugged steel 2U rackmount enclosure, the DL152 is designed for the rigours of live concert touring. Premium Neutrik connectors are used for reliable audio and network connections, night after night.

Auto-ranging universal switch-mode power supply

DL152 features a universal power supply, which is auto-voltage sensing for use on a worldwide basis.

Architecture and Engineering Specifications
