The A-16D, made by Aviom, is an 8-port audio and power distribution module, housed in a 1/2 space metal rack case, and made for use with that company's personal monitoring and mixing system.

The A-16D adheres to Aviom's proprietary A-Net protocol, an ethernet-based technology that delivers high-speed transmission of uncompressed, very low latency audio over distances of up to 500 ft., using a standard Category-5 computer network cable with RJ45 connectors.

The ingenious power distribution of the A-16D is designed so that the power supplies of up to 8 remote A-series mixers and other components may be connected to a set of rear panel connectors, sending DC power along with the audio through the single Category-5 cable, simultaneously, in parallel fashion. This enables an easier, faster and cleaner remote setup, eliminating the need for extra power strips and concerns over remote AC access.

The A-16D, and the entire A-Net series, represents a genuinely innovative development in wired personal monitoring technology, for the benefit of live music performance and studio recording, commercial and institutional installations, theater installations, and houses of worship, at a breakthrough price point.

      Comments about Aviom A16D - 1/2 Space Rackmount A-Net Distributor:

      Great unit if you don't want to filp out the cash for the pro version. The difffrence being that pro version powers all the units while this one needs a power supply for each connection plugged into the back...buy a large power strip. The pro also has the nice locking CAT5 connector. This small unit worked great for use and saved some cash.
