Yamaha RIO1608-D2 Digital Stage Box For Yamaha Consoles
Yamaha RIO1608-D2 Stage Box
Yamaha RIO 1608 D2 second generation of the RIO1608 stage box is a 16 in and 8 out digital stage box. You can combine any of the Yamaha RIO stage boxes together to add more ins and outs. The RIO1608D2 is used for the Yamaha CL series consoles, Yamaha QL series consoles and also can be used on the RIVAGE, NUAGE, and TF series digital mixing systems. It has a build in redundant power supply that can put your mind to ease if the main power supply is blown.
This high-performance RIO1608-D2 I/O rack features 16 analog inputs and 8 analog outputs, and is compatible with Yamaha CL and QL series consoles as well as the RIVAGE PM series. The Rio1608-D2 connects directly to Dante digital audio networks, allowing flexible system configuration. Dual power supply units are built in for high reliability, and a character/graphic display offers easy visual confirmation.
- 16 analog inputs and 8 outputs.
- Redundant connections are supported with primary and secondary connectors. Daisy chain connections are also supported.
- Comprehensive display and local control of gain and other parameters.
- Dual power supply units are built in for high reliability.
- Power consumption: 72W
Dual Redundant Power Supplies and Improved, Quiet Airflow
Power failure is a major risk when operating any audio I/O device. Both the Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 I/O Racks include dual power supply units to reduce the chance that power loss will result in downtime during a show. If a problem occurs with one power source, operation will continue unaffected as long as the second power source is active. Internal airflow has been redesigned too, reducing fan noise for notably quieter operation.
Character Displays and Control Improvements
Another Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 refinement is the provision of character/icon displays rather than basic LED indicators, allowing quick, easy confirmation of Dante settings as well as metering, gain, high-pass filters, phantom power, and more. It is also possible to edit gain, high-pass filters, and phantom power settings directly from the I/O Rack interface, and even lock them if required. Remote operation from the R Remote software application is also possible.
Digital Compensation for Analog Gain Changes
When multiple consoles are connected to one I/O rack and operators at those consoles make analog gain changes, the results can be unpredictable and usually undesirable. The Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 feature a Gain Compensation function that automatically adjusts gain at the digital stage to compensate for analog gain changes, ensuring that sound is sent to the network at a constant level.
