Closing the gap between stage and front of house, the Midas DL16 is a 16-in/8-out stage box that includes 16 fully programmable and remotely controllable Midas mic preamps, which are the same preamps found in the larger PRO Series consoles, and are equipped with switchable +48V phantom power. Additionally, the DL16 features 8 electronically balanced low impedance line level outputs, as all of the DL16's inputs and outputs have been designed to handle both balanced and unbalanced signals, removing any worries about signal degradation, noise, and crosstalk interference. The DL16 also features dual Cirrus Logic Digital to Analog converters, providing a reduced noise floor and lower distortion, and post-DAC filtering to remove wide-band noise.

The DL16 Stage Box includes an Ultranet port that lets performers connect directly to the Powerplay P16 system for in-ear monitoring, and lets each artist take control of their own monitor mix. This allows for performance and audience concentration without other possible sonic distractions.

The DL16 comes outfitted with dual ADAT outputs for use in splitter mode and stand-alone digital multi-core applications. Many manufacturers have adopted the ADAT digital interface as a means of transferring digital data between certain types of audio devices, such as mixers, synthesizers, lighting rigs, and effect processors. With the DL16's dual ADAT outputs, you can simply connect to any ADAT-compatible outboard devices.

The stage box also includes dual AES50 ports for cascading multiple units over a single shielded (STP) CAT5 cable. Up to three DL16s can be daisy-chained to deliver 48 channels in and 24 out to the stage. This flexibility benefits both live and studio recording applications, as well as post-production, broadcasting, and audio routing infrastructure.

The DL16 can be remotely operated up to 328' (100 m) via CAT5/5e cable, simplifying communication between the stage and front of house. The DL16's monitoring / head amp control section allows you to select any one of the 16 inputs or 8 outputs for immediate line checks. In addition to signal metering at the stage box, you can set individual channel gain, apply +48V phantom power, plus you have the option listening directly to the input signal. Even at this distance, all settings can be controlled or programmed from the front panel of the console. Once set, all configuration settings can be locked at the console for system security.

Each of the 16 Neutrik XLR inputs is equipped with a status indicator LED, which illuminates to show when the +48V phantom power is used, providing instant clarity and ease of use. For versatility, each headphone output is assignable to any of the inputs or outputs for on-stage monitoring via the 1/4" jack socket located on the front panel of the DL16. With this, you have the option of listening directly to any of the 16 inputs via headphones. Simply select the signal that you need to monitor by scrolling through each of the 16 channels, adjusting the gain where needed, and change the operating mode, all via a single rotary potentiometer.

The automation scenes allow MIDI to be incorporated, so that the external MIDI-compatible devices can be controlled as part of the scene change via the console's MIDI output. Additionally, console events can be triggered from an external MIDI source via the console's MIDI input. You can also control the gain and phantom power settings remotely using the MIDI communication functionality.

Housed in a road-ready, rugged 19" 2U rack-mountable chassis, the DL16 is designed to withstand the rigors of touring applications.
