WEST CHESTER, PA, JANUARY 11, 2010 — Aviom, exclusive developer of the world's most powerful 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 robust protection to the Personal Mixer’s case and connectors while supplying additional audio connectivity options. In addition to the1/4-inch stereo headphone jack found on the Personal Mixers, the MT-X also offers a 1/8-inch stereo headphone jack, as well as separate XLR left/right audio outputs, streamlining connections to a wide range of listening devices. 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 most common feature requests we get are for locking connectors and a metal case. The MT-X is a cost-effective way for our existing users to get these features without having to replace their mixers,” says Chandler Collison, director of marketing for Aviom. “We know our mixers can take a real beating on stage, in the studio, and on the road, and the MT-X gives the extra protection users are looking for, as well as the convenience of more output options.”
The MT-X Expansion Box can attach to any A-16 or A-16II Personal Mixer using the MT-1 Mic Mount.
