dbx TR1616 overview

  • 1Description

The dbx TR1616 Performance I/O Interface is a 16-input, 16-output analog to BLU link and BLU link to analog audio interface. By providing a modular yet simple solution, the TR1616 is highly expandable and easy to configure. With 16 precision mic preamps and combo-style input jacks, the TR1616 accepts line level or mic level input signals. Configurable in banks of 16 channels, the modular design of the TR1616 allows you to create the digital snake or BLU link network that’s right for you. As your needs change, additional TR1616s can easily be added to the network, providing expansion of up to 256 channels at 48 kHz (or 128 channels at 96 kHz). And with its plug and play functionality, getting into networked digital audio no longer requires long hours of training and programming. Whether you require additional analog inputs or outputs in an existing BLU link compatible system, a digital snake solution for live sound, or a complete personal stage monitoring solution using the PMC16 personal monitor controllers (sold separately), the TR1616 provides a professional solution for transmitting high-resolution audio over CAT5e.
