The AV-M8 Mic Input Module provides eight mic-level inputs to a Pro16® system. Two channels also include a 20dB switchable pad for use with line-level input sources. Eight channels of digital audio may also be input via ADAT®, from a second AV-M8 module. The unit may be mounted in a rack or to a table or podium, using the reversible mounting flanges or detachable rack ears.

The AV-M8 is compatible with all Pro16 Series products including Personal Mixers, A-Net distributors, and output modules.

Input Connections

Analog audio is input via eight latching 5.0mm Euroblock connectors. Each analog input channel features configuration DIP switches for individually selectable gain settings, +48V phantom power, and low cut filter.

Analog input channels are routed to Channels 1-8 in the A-Net® stream, while channels input via the ADAT link become A-Net Channels 9-16. Stereo linking for all eight A-Net channel pairs is supported through an eight-position rear-panel DIP switch.

Network Connections

A-Net connections include A-Net Out and A-Net Expansion, using locking Neutrik EtherCon connectors. The A-Net Expansion jack allows up to 32 channels to be carried on a single Cat-5e cable, in either 32x0 or 16x16 configurations. Larger systems (up to 64 channels on a cable) can be built using Aviom's AN-16SBR System Bridge. Pro16 A-Net supports Cat-5e cable runs up to 500ft/150m between devices. For installations requiring longer cable runs, single- or multi-mode fiber optics may be utilized, using certain standard third- party media converters.
