A 5U fixed configuration I/O unit with 48 mic/line inputs and 16 mic/line outputs
The DL251 is a 5U 19″ fixed-configuration rack I/O unit with 48 mic/line inputs and 16 mic/line outputs. The DL251 is limited to analogue connections only and provides a more cost-effective solution for those not requiring the flexibility of MIDAS modular I/O hardware.
MIDI (in, out and thru) and one Ethernet control port are fitted as standard. Three AES50 ports handle the (n 1) redundant digital audio interface. The DL251 is capable of being switched between 96 kHz and 48 kHz via a front panel switch.
On the rear panel there is a Mute All Outputs button for onstage re-patching. The unit is also equipped with dual-redundant PSUs.
