12out 96kHz Expander

DX012 provides remote output expansion for SQ, Avantis and dLive mixers, and for AHM audio matrix processors.

12 XLR Outs

Flexible switching options between balanced, relay protected analogue and stereo AES digital on outputs 5-12.

AES Compatible

AES outputs globally switchable between 44.1kHz,
48kHz, 88.2kHz or 96kHz.

Redundant & Cascade Modes

Redundant mode supports dual-cable connection to compatible hardware. Cascade mode allows daisy-chaining of up to 2 DX Expanders on each DX port.


No configuration required, just connect to your mixer and you’re ready to go. Firmware updates are handled automatically by the mixer.

Perfect for feeding IEM systems and amplifier racks, DX012 offers both analogue and AES digital output options in a compact 1U form factor.

Maximum Flexibility

Put It Where You Need It

The DX012 can be placed up to 100m away from the mixer for maximum flexibility of positioning and features integrated rack-ears for mounting in a 1U 19″ space. The expander connects via a single Cat5e cable to the mixer or upstream DX Expander via a secure EtherCon port. A second locking EtherCon port is provided for redundant connection to compatible hardware, or for daisy-chaining to a downstream DX Expander for additional remote I/O.

Analogue + AES
