xDR-16 helps you satisfy the ever growing hunger for more inputs, more monitor mixes, more recording feeds, more everything that is a fact of pro audio life. xDR-16 puts the I/O where you need it – across the other side of the stage, at FoH, in another room, on the drum riser, even in a separate building. Connection is over a single CAT5 cable – saving the time, hassle and expense of running audio snakes and stage boxes.
xDR-16 is a 16 input, 8 output expander for iLive digital mixing systems. Whether you simply want to accommodate more sources or whether you want local I/O in different areas of a stage or venue, xDR-16 adds to the convenience and flexibility of the iLive concept.
Up to two xDR-16s can be added to an iLive System*, connecting via an iLive MixRack fitted with an ACE card in Port B. Each xDR-16 can operate up to 120m from its parent MixRack over CAT5 cable using Allen & Heath’s ACE Link.
xDR-16 provides physical I/O expansion – it does not have any DSP processing power of its own. The expander provides access to the powerful 64×32 DSP engine which is at the heart of all iLive MixRacks, making xDR-16 a cost effective way to get more from an iLive system. Example: an iDR-32 MixRack has 64×32 DSP but only 32 physical XLR inputs and 16 XLR outputs. Expanding this system with a pair of xDR-16s creates a 64 XLR input, 32 XLR output system, making full use of the iDR-32’s DSP.
