Solidyne DX816 12 channels digital On-Air console with AoIP option

The DX816 console marks a milestone at global technology for new radio studios with limited budgets. This new model advantageously replaces the previous model D816 sold in 65 countries.

It is the more economical digital console for the master control room of a radio station. It offers digital and analog inputs & outs, covering all the needs of a modern radio in on-air studio, Newsroom or Production.
Faders are conductive ceramic of 15 years duration with ETM-VCA control that prevents the audio pass through movable contacts.

The attenuators are made of ceramic conductive for 15 years and have ETM-VCA control that avoids the possibility of noise. It also includes 3 conference telephone hybrids operated by luminous keypads. One of them operates cell phones by Bluetooth 4.0 wirelessly.

The console has independent stereo outputs for Air and Recordings and 5 monitored channels

In this way you can do two tasks at the same time ..

The 5 microphones (10 in model 822) have a 4-band equalizer switchable to PGM or REC specially designed for the human voice. Your announcers will have that special sound of the big consoles of very high price, which will delight your listeners.

Five dynamic microphones are operated on the DX816 from three attenuators. Or three capacitor MIC with 48V phantom.
The console offers GPIO outputs for MIC and Line.

A Master MIC button on the panel sends all MICs on the air.
A Tally Light that can be seen from all directions tells the speakers that the console is AIR.

The control turret indicates the number of digital channels used, which can reach 8 channels with the two USB inputs / outputs connected.
The bottom part shows the action of the audio compressor that levels the sound of all the microphones.
This exclusive device of the consoles Solidyne allows to level automatically, without using the attenuators, the intensity of sound of each of the speakers ensuring that all of them can be heard in the air in a natural and perfect.

The Solidyne consoles are the only ones in the world to offer the new 15-year Conductive Ceramic attenuator technology.

They are easily recognized by their remarkable softness as they can be moved by supporting a feather …

The attenuators of the DX816 have a construction very different from the conventional attenuators,because they glide smoothly on two steel-silver cylindrical bars with Teflon bushings. 
Solidyne’s exclusive ETM-VCA technology means that console audio never goes through 
a carbon track and that’s why they last more than 15 years.
