Aviom’s new A-Net product for use with the A-16 Personal Monitor Mixing System, the A-16D Pro A-Net Distributor, is a 2U device that is designed to distribute the A-Net signal from an A-16T Transmitter, the AN-16/i Input Module, the original A-16D Distributor or another A-16D Pro Distributor.

Each A-16D Pro accepts one A-Net input signal and provides for eight simultaneous A-Net outputs using standard Cat-5 cables. The A-16D Pro Distributor also features a dedicated A-Net Thru jack that allows the A-Net signal to be sent to other A-16D Pro A-Net Distributors, providing for virtually unlimited system expansion. In addition, the Thru jack can be used to connect other A-Net-compatible units, such as the AN-16/o Output Module, allowing the A-16D Pro to become a central link in an audio distribution network.

The A-16D Pro Distributor eliminates the need to daisy-chain A-16 Personal Mixers, simplifying stage and studio setups. The unit is powered by an internal switching power supply, with an IEC connector on the rear panel. All connections for A-Net In/Out/Thru use Neutrik’s EtherCon connectors.

The A-16D Pro A-Net Distributor provides eight channels of isolated (floating-ground) DC power to the connected A-16 Personal Monitor Mixers directly, eliminating the need for a power supply at each mixer’s location. The original A-16D Distributor remains in the product line. Unlike the A-16D, the A-16D Pro does not require any external DC power supplies. Inside the A-16D Pro is Aviom’s power subsystem design that virtually eliminates the possibility of introducing hum or ground loops into an audio system.

All connections on the A-16D Pro are on the front panel. A pass-through cable cutout is provided for flexible cable routing. As with all Aviom A-Net-compatible products, cable runs of up to 500 feet are possible between devices.

The list price of the A-16D Pro is $999.95 and is expected to ship in Q2 2004.
