Ashly Audio’s new DLM-821 Stereo Ducking Line Mixer is designed for permanent installations that use multiple microphones or stereo line-level sources, such as restaurants, boardrooms, night clubs, health clubs, houses of worship, sports bars or in single/dual-zone applications.

The DLM-821 is housed in an all-steel, 1RU chassis and uses Euroblock connectors for all audio connections. There are eight stereo inputs; the first four channels are selectable to accept mic or line-levels. Eighteen-volt phantom power is available on the mic inputs. Channels 1 and 2 are used for ducking inputs that duck the outputs of channels 3 through 8. Internal switching allows the user set the ducking depth and trigger threshold.

Features include eight stereo or 16 mono inputs, balanced inputs and outputs, ducking-enable switch, internally selectable for priority ducking override for channel 1, internal depth select switch for –20 dB or-90 dB, threshold trigger select of –20 or –40 dBu, individual left/right/mono outputs, selectable mic/line-level mono output, L and R level meters with clip indicators, individual channel mute switches, stereo output mute switch, stereo headphone output with level control and a rear panel power switch.
