Rentex No. YHRIO1608 | Mfr No. RIO1608-D

The Rio1608-D is a high-performance low-latency I/O unit for our Yamaha CL, and QL consoles (also compatible with RIVAGE and PM series consoles). This digital stagebox is loaded with 16 transparent, natural sounding microphone preamps, and 8 line outputs. The Rio1608-D connects directly to a Dante digital audio network, giving you flexible system configuration at up to 96kHz, as well offering the ability to run in redundant or daisy-chain configuration.  Flexible and ease of setup; configuring and adding a Rio3224-D to your audio system is designed to be stress free.
