Midas DL251


48 x 16 Fixed Format I/O Unit


The DL251 from MIDAS is a 5U 19″ rackmount fixed-configuration I/O unit with forty-eight microphone/line inputs and sixteen line outputs. Limited to analog connections, the unit provides a more cost-effective solution for those not needing the flexibility of MIDAS modular I/O hardware.

MIDI (In, Out, Thru) connectors and an Ethernet control port are fitted as standard. Three AES50 ports handle the (n+1) redundant digital audio interface. The DL251 is capable of being switched between 96 kHz and 48 kHz via the front panel.

A rear panel “Mute All Outputs” button is provided for aiding in onstage re-patching. The unit is also equipped with dual-redundant, universal power supplies.
