16 classic Cadac high quality mic amps in a 3U 19" rack
Each M16 provides 16 microphone pre-amplifiers with adjustable gain from 10 dB to 60 dB, 20 dB Pad, 48 V Phantom Power, Polarity Reverse, High Pass Filter (60 Hz @ 12 dB/Octave), Signal level indication and Channel Mute.
16 XLR inputs, hand tuned for Common Mode Rejection feed 3 hand tuned balanced split outputs, one set on XLRs and 2 on D connectors.
Specially selected AD converters supply a MADI output which can be set to either 48kHz opr 96kHz sample rates, and either 56 channel or 64 channel extended mode with external word clock in or out connection.
Control over the microphone pre-amplifiers is provided either directly from the M16 front panel, or from the optional RM16 remote head.
Multiple M16s can be controlled from one remote RM16, and can also link the PFL bus.
No longer are numerous splitters, mic pre-amplifier units, audio converters and distribution systems required. The Cadac Digital Series Stage Rack provides all this, within a scaleable system that can be flight-cased for portability. As an example, a system comprising four M16s, a single remote head (RM16) and an X16 not only provides 64 remote controlled mic pre-amplifiers, but three analogue sends per pre-amplifier and eight MADI sends covering all 64 channels (irrespective of sample rate). If that wasn’t enough, you also benefit from the highly regarded and pristine quality of Cadac’s analogue and digital technology.
