16in / 4out 96kHz Expander

16in / 4out 96kHz Expander

The DX164-W is a wall mountable expander that adds remote I/O to a dLive, Avantis or SQ mixer, or to AHM audio matrix processors.

16 Mic Preamps

+60dB of gain, Phantom Power indicators and -20dB pad for line level sources.

4 Line Outs

Balanced, relay protected line outputs on XLR.

Redundant and 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.

Install Options

Wall or Floor Mount

The reversible mounting frame allows for in-wall or on-wall mounting. With custom brackets, the unit can be fitted in a standard NEMA box, or mounted in a floor pocket for stage use.

Maximum Flexibility

Put It Where You Need It

The DX164-W can be placed up to 100m away from the mixer for maximum flexibility of positioning. 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.

Install Options

Flexible Power Options

The IEC mains power inlet can be replaced with a gland module and screw terminals for fixed installation, and a DC 12V backup input is also provided.
