Sound Design

Get the Best Out of Your Dante Network

The quality of your Dante audio is only as good as the quality of your Dante I/O.

DT164-W offers the acclaimed Allen & Heath preamps, partnered with 96kHz converters, for best-in-class sound quality over Dante, plus Primary and Secondary ports for daisy-chain or redundancy through secure EtherCon connectors.


DT Preamp Control

DT Preamp Control is a Windows / macOS application that allows remote control of multiple DT168 or DT164-W Dante expanders. Control of analogue gain, phantom power and Pad is provided per socket. The socket names are also displayed and can be edited in Dante Controller.

DT Preamp Control extends the applications of the DT168 and DT164-W expanders, not limited to Allen & Heath mixing systems or matrix processors. These include large distributed audio networks in venues, stadia and educational campuses, where high-channel count Dante I/O is required in multiple locations.

DT164-W Compatibility

Up to 16 DT164-W expanders can be added to an AHM, SQ, Avantis or dLive system when equipped with an SQ Dante or dLive 96kHz Dante card. The DT164-W can also be used on Dante equipped 3rd party mixers in conjunction with the DT Preamp Control software.
