Cloud USA CX263 Overview

The CX263 1 U Rackmountable Audio Mixer from Cloud USA combines simple control of background music with versatile microphone paging for up to three separate areas. It is suitable for use in many types of premises, including pubs, bars, clubs, shops, offices, hotels, and more. It has six stereo line inputs and two microphone inputs. It has three separate zone outputs, in each of which one of the line inputs and the microphone inputs may be mixed together. The mixer features separate user controls for music source selection, and music and individual mic levels are provided for each zone. One of the zone outputs is stereo, making it suitable for driving a main public area where music fidelity is more important.

The CX263 audio mixer is compatible with Cloud PM Series paging microphones. Alternatively, Mic 1 input may be configured to suit most OEM paging systems: paging may be activated by voice (VOX) or short-to-ground access connections, and Mic 1 may be configured to have priority over the Mic 2 to prevent announcement clashes. Additionally, one line input may be set to have priority over any other selected to facilitate connection of a digital sound store or similar device. This audio mixer can also be fitted with an optional RS-232 serial control interface as well as allowing remote music control, the interface’s command set permits remote control of other unit functions.
