Aviom updated its A-16 Personal Mixer with the A-16II, which features newly designed higher voltage and higher current output circuitry.

According to Aviom design engineer Tom Metcalf, “The new output design allows even high-impedance headphones to be driven louder and cleaner. We have incorporated large bulk capacitors in the design to provide cleaner transient response to the entire range of output devices.”

A new plug auto-detect circuit at the output determines whether the device plugged into the A-16II’s audio out jack is mono or stereo. When a mono plug is detected in the output jack, the circuit automatically pans the right-channel information so that the individual channel balance remains accurate.

Several new software enhancements have been added. A new solo mode, called Held Solo, allows the user to remain in solo mode and make channel selections without returning to mix mode. A Global Trim function allows the user to decrease the volume by 6 dB on all 16 mixer channels simultaneously by using a simple button combination. Also, the personal mixer can now display the last-selected mix preset.

New cosmetic enhancements have also been added, including a new scribble strip has been designed, text on the new label has been re-arranged and now includes button combination information for the Global Trim function and a clearer labeling of the bass and treble tone controls.

The new A-16II Personal Mixer is fully compatible with all existing personal monitor mixing systems and with Aviom’s AN Series of distributed audio network products.

The list price of the A-16II Personal Mixer is $499.95 and is expected to ship in Q2 2004. For more information, visit www.aviom.com/Products/A-16ii.html.
