    DT164-W - Overview

    The Allen&Heath DT164-W provides 16 microphone preamps and 4 line outputs in a versatile wall-mount design for permanent installation. The reversible mounting frame allows for in-wall or on-wall mounting. With custom brackets, the unit can be fitted in a standard NEMA box, or mounted in a floor pocket for stage use. The IEC mains power inlet can be replaced with a gland module and screw terminals for fixed installation, and a DC 12V backup supply is also provided.

    DT164-W offers the acclaimed Allen & Heath preamps, complete with 96kHz converters for best-in-class sound quality over Dante, plus Primary and Secondary ports for daisy-chain or redundancy through secure EtherCon connectors.

    With dLive
    Up to 6 DX164-W units can be connected to a standard dLive system - 4 via the MixRack and 2 via the Surface - allowing up to 96 remote inputs and 24 remote outputs in addition to those provided by the MixRack and Surface. Up to 46 units can be added to a dLive system via a DX Link card or DX Hub (808 analogue inputs, 224 analogue outputs).

    The DX164-W connects via a single Cat5e cable (Ethernet based Layer 2) to the dLive Surface, MixRack, DX Hub or upstream DX164-W / DX168 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 DX164-W or DX168 for additional remote I/O.

    With AHM-64
    Two units can be daisy chained and connected directly to an AHM-64 SLink port. Up to 8 DX164-W units can be added to an AHM-64 system via a DX Hub and freely patched to the 64 input channels.

    With Avantis
    Two units can be daisy chained and connected directly to an Avantis SLink port. Up to 16 DX164-W units can be added to an Avantis system via DX Link card and/or DX Hubs.

    With SQ
    Two units can be daisy chained and connected directly to an SQ SLink port, with the optional SLink card for SQ enabling more connections. For a more distributed system, a DX Hub can handle up to 8 DX164-W or DX168 units in any combination, which can be freely patched to the SQ's 48 input channels.
