The A-16II Personal Mixer is a 16-channel stereo digital mixer designed to allow performers to create custom monitor mixes on stage or in the studio. The stereo output on the A-16II can drive in-ear monitors (IEMs) or headphones. Its intuitive interface lets a performer quickly modify a mix without distracting from the primary job at hand-performing live or in the studio.
A-16II mixers are known as the industry standard worldwide, and for good reasons: they're robust, simple to use, and sound great. Just connect an A-16II to an analog input module or digital console card to start a system. It's that easy.
Designed for use in live performance or in the studio, the A-16II Personal Mixer gives each performer control over channel volume, grouping, pan, stereo spread, as well as master volume and tone. Every Personal Mixer in a system can create a unique monitor mix for a performer. Users can save and recall up to sixteen custom mixes as presets in their Personal Mixer.Stereo Output for Wired or Wireless IEMs
The TRS stereo output from the A-16II can be used to drive wired or wireless in-ear monitors (IEMs), headphones, powered floor wedges, an amplifier, or spot monitors.
The A-16II Personal Mixer is fully compatible with all Pro16 Series products, including Aviom's Y1 A-Net card for Yamaha digital mixing consoles. Support for the industry standard Aviom monitor mixing is available in the form of console interface cards from an ever- increasing list of digital console manufacturers (including Avid (Digidesign), DiGiCo, Soundcraft, Innovason, Tascam). Many other digital console manufacturers offer a Pro16 A-Net output option.Power Over Cat-5
Personal Mixers can be daisy chained or connected in parallel using an A-Net Distributor. Parallel connections also allow DC power to be supplied to the mixers over the Cat-5e cable. The A-16II supports Cat-5e cable runs of up to 500 feet (150 meters) between devices, and there is no practiacal limit to the number of personal mixers in a system.Note:
The A-16II Personal Mixer does not ship with a power supply since most system configurations include an A-Net Distributor. Order the PS-120
if you need an external power supply.Compatibility
All Pro16 Personal Mixers, including the A-16II, A-16R
, and A360
, can be used in any combination when creating a personal mixing system.
