Introduced at last month's Musikmesse, Aviom's ( 6416m mic input module and the optional RCI remote-control interface and MCS mic control surface are designed for the Pro64 audio network system. The 6416m offers 16 mic-level analog inputs at all Pro64 sample rates, from 44.1/48 to 192 kHz, with continuously variable gain and individual channel on/off switches. Other features include XLR inputs with +48-volt phantom power, low-cut filter, phase invert and pad per channel, and each 6416m can save 16 mic preamp presets for easy recall.


RCF ( is now shipping its “mini-sized” TTL31-A two-way line array. The bi-amplified system has switching amps (500W LF/250W HF) powering an 8-inch neodymium woofer and three ND1411-MT neodymium compression drivers in a compact, 12×21×18-inch Baltic Birch-ply cabinet. Onboard 96kHz/32-bit DSP handles system optimization — equalization, driver alignment and crossover — along with hard limiting and clipping protection. A matching 1,000W, 12-inch subwoofer (model TTL12-AS) is optional.


The Square One splitter from Klark Teknik ( provides a simple analog solution to signal distribution with a high-performance, Midas XL8-derived preamp design packaged in a 2U, 8-channel format. To increase versatility, a third set of independent (fixed-gain), transformer-isolated outputs are provided. The Square One splitter can also function as a 1-in/16-out media split box.


With models from 2,500 to 8,000W, QSC's ( new PowerLight 3 Series offers a choice of DSP with remote control/monitoring via BASIS or value-oriented analog input operation. The top-end PL380 ($2,735) has two 4,000W, Class-D channels; the 2,000W PL340 ($1,633) and 1,250W PL325 ($1,253) have the same features as the PL380, but are Class-H designs. All of these two-rackspace amps also offer detented gain controls with 1dB increments, removable knobs with a lockout security plate and selectable 1.2V/32dB/26dB input gains.


Alto ( expands its MS line with the MS12A, a compact, high-power monitor with a lightweight, 12-inch coaxial driver with a neodymium compression driver, 420W of bi-amplification and onboard DSP modeling to simulate various acoustic environments. Other features include an analog protection limiter, multilayer plywood trapezoidal enclosure, a steel grille, balanced line input and link/thru XLRs, a 121dB max SPL output and a weight of only 26 pounds. Retail is $649; also available is a 10-inch version (MS10A) priced at $579.
