What is it? A pair of input and output rack units using the Dante audio networking to deliver “almost limitless” system flexibility. Details The 1U space-saving Ri8-D Input and Ro8-D Output rack units are designed to complement the CL series Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D i/o units, making it possible to place inputs only where a system needs inputs and outputs only where it need outputs – or any combination of the two. Maintaining the same audio quality as the CL Series, the Ri8-D and Ro8-D are said to offer an “eminently natural, musical sound” through meticulous component selection, circuit board layout, power supply design and grounding. The two units also work seamlessly with compatible Yamaha professional audio products with installed Dante-MY16-AUD interface cards. These include the M7CL and LS9 digital consoles and the DME64N digital mixing engine. And another thing… Ri8-D head amplifiers can also be controlled directly from the user interface of a compatible console.
