PRO SERIES DL431
DL431 is a 6U 19″ fixed-configuration rack I/O unit designed for microphone signal splitting applications with 24 mic/line level inputs and 72 line level outputs, and delivers legendary MIDAS sound quality utilising our time-tested and roadproven technologies. Featuring two independent MIDAS microphone preamplifiers with 2.5 dB gain steps plus a third fixed gain MIDAS Microphone preamplifier per input channel, two dual redundant AES50 network interfaces, dual redundant Ethernet control ports and a MIDI Interface (In, Out, Thru), the DL431 is the ideal partner to the MIDAS PRO3, PRO6, PRO9, XL8 and PRO X digital consoles, enabling a digital snake connection from Front of House to stage.
Award-Winning Midas Microphone Preamplifier
The MIDAS microphone preamplifier is considered by leading live sound and recording engineers to be the very essence of the famous MIDAS sound. More than 40 years of design experience paired with the finest choice of premium-grade components lead to the acclaimed warmth and depth – bringing out subtle ambience, maintaining spatial positioning and more effectively capturing a precise sound image. The acclaimed sound of the award-winning MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of live sound engineers to their best work, creating sonic panoramas that have captivated audiences worldwide.
Since pristine sound always begins with the microphone preamplifier, the first point where the signal enters the console, DL431 features the latest generation of MIDAS microphone preamplifiers, which faithfully reproduce every sonic detail so no part of a performance will ever be missed. Transparent and pristine sound, low noise and high common-mode rejection are all hallmarks of this classic design.
Over the years many mix engineers have found this robust and overload-tolerant design takes on a whole new dimension of sound when driven hard, the crystal-clear audiophile reproduction giving way to just the right combination of harmonics, a warm and organic sound heard by millions of concert goers and recorded for posterity on countless live albums over the years.
Digital Audio Networking
SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK simultaneously provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use – to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.
DL431 is compatible with all MIDAS PRO Series and XL8 digital consoles and audio system engines, as well as with any other 96 kHz-enabled AES50-equipped devices.
