About this item



12 XLR Output Analogue/AES Portable DX Expander

Need to get more out of your system? The Allen & Heath DX012 provides remote output expansion for SQ, Avantis, and dLive mixers, and for the AHM-64 audio matrix processor.

Perfect for feeding IEM systems and amplifier racks, DX012 offers both analog and AES digital output options in a compact 1U form factor.

Each DX012 provides 12 XLR outputs, configurable as:

  • 12 analog line outputs
  • 8 analog line outputs + 4 stereo AES outputs
  • 4 analog line outputs + 8 stereo AES outputs

The DX012 connects via a single Cat5e cable to the dLive Surface, dLive MixRack, AHM-64 matrix processor, Avantis mixer, SQ mixer, or upstream DX expander via a secure EtherCon port.

A second locking EtherCon port is provided for redundant connection to compatible hardware, or for daisy-chaining to a downstream DX expander for additional remote I/O.
