Overview DD32R-FX:

DIGITAL I/O MODULE – The DD32R-FX is designed to function as a digital interface, wherever AES/EBU ports are required in an OPTOCORE OPTICAL or CAT5 SANE DIGITAL NETWORK SYSTEM. The 32 principle ports feature the unique possibility of any combination of AES/EBU inputs and/or outputs. With the other Optocore and SANE devices, the DD32R-FX offers a great flexibility to build the network exactly suiting an application's need. With Optocore microphone preamps (X6R), the DD32R-FX enables the gain control of the preamps on stage from a Yamaha digital console at FOH. These common installation interfaces provide a simple and cost-efficient connection to other audio equipment.
