A simple, flexible system for live sound

Rio Series I/O units work just as well with Dante-capable devices such as a NEXO NXAMP equipped with the NXDT104 card as they do with CL Series consoles. Discovery and patching for the Rio I/O and NXAMP can be managed directly from the CL console without the need for a computer and Dante Controller software.

The Rio3224-D handles stage-side I/O, while Ri8-D units serve as a portable input racks on stage and at the console position. An Ro8-D is located in the hall’s or theater’s amp room, delivering audio to the system’s power amplifiers.

Teamed up with a PM5D console for 96 kHz operation

Rio Series I/O units can be used with a PM5D console and DME64N digital mixing engine to create a 96 kHz system. Rio input signals are mixed at the PM5D, and then returned to the Rio units after processing via the DME64N. Even relatively complex routing like this can be easily managed via simple physical cabling and virtual patching via the Dante Controller software.

* The PM5D and DME64N must be equipped with the Audinate Dante-MY16-AUD interface card.
* The Dante Controller software is required to set up to allow Rio Series head amplifier control from the PM5D console.

Installation Case

Intec Systems recently completed major upgrades to the audio systems of two of New Zealand’s largest churches. Both installations were required to be easily re-configured depending on the requirements of each service with Dante providing the ideal connectivity solution.

Installation Case

Now in its 17th year, Italy’s La Notte della Taranta (Night of Tarantula) is both the country’s biggest music festival and its most important event dedicated to traditional culture. Three weeks of live concerts culminated in a huge show in the town of Melpignano, where four Yamaha CL and QL consoles weaved ancient and modern music seamlessly together.
