LAS VEGAS, Nevada –  HARMAN’s dbx today announced the introduction of its TR1616 BLU link I/O  a 16-input/16-output digital on ramp/off ramp module that brings  professional digital networked audio connectivity to an attractive price point.

“Our  new TR1616 allows users to create a digital snake or network to the  size they need with plug-and-play simplicity. In an easy to use and  highly flexible way using the BLU link digital audio bus,” said Noel Larson, Market Manager for Portable PA, Tour and Recording. “Thanks to the TR1616, customers will no longer have to keep buying new  systems and replacing old ones, as the system will expand with your  needs.”

The  TR1616 offers 16 XLR/TRS analog inputs and 16 analog outputs, along  with BLU link RJ-45 Loop input and output and an RJ-45 Snake input and  output ports. Users can configure up to 256 channels at 48kHz or up to 128 channels at  96kHz. No addressing or programming is required.

Each  of the TR1616’s 16 front-panel channels features a high-quality dbx mic  preamp with mic gain, 20dB pad, low-cut filter, +48V phantom power and  polarity selection, along with signal, clipping and additional indicators. A  rear-panel USB and Ethernet port enables uploading future firmware  updates.

Up  to 60 TR1616 units can be linked together with no loss of control or  fidelity, enabling first-time users to expand their systems as their  connectivity requirements increase. The dbx TR1616 is ideal for use with mixing consoles and with the new dbx PMC Personal Monitor Controller, a remote control that allows performers to easily set up and control their  personal mix of up to 16 channels of audio via a BSS Audio BLU link  interface. A live mode option provides the user the capability to see  real-time view of channels.

The dbx TR1616 Blu link I/O will be available in September 2012.
