Aviom debuts Expansion Box for personal audio mixers
Aviom, maker of the audio transport protocol A-Net, is providing its personal mixer users with additional connection options and durability with the introduction of the MT-X expansion box.
The MT-X expansion box can be added to any A-16 or A-16II personal mixer and offers users protection to the personal mixer’s case and connectors while supplying additional audio connectivity options. In addition to the 1/4in stereo headphone jack found on the personal mixers, the MT-X also offers a 1/8in stereo headphone jack, as well as separate XLR left/right audio outputs.
All connectors are located on the underside of the MT-X, with an internal wire harness that connects to the A-16II audio output jack and A-Net input jack. For further robustness, the A-Net input on the MT-X features a heavy-duty locking EtherCon connector.
The MT-X is a cost-effective way for existing users to get these features without having to replace their mixers. The MT-X expansion box can attach to any A-16 or A-16II personal mixer using the MT-1 mic mount.
