Midas DL252 is a fixed-configuration rack I/O unit with 16 mic/line level inputs and 48 line level outputs, in a 5U housing.

It features award-winning Midas microphone preamps with 2.5 dB analogue gain steps and three AES50 network ports providing N+1 redundancy, plus an Ethernet control port and a MIDI Interface (In, Out, Thru). DL252 is the ideal partner to the Midas PRO series or M32 Series digital consoles, enabling a digital snake connection between Front of House and stage.

96 kHz or 48 kHz Operation
DL252 supports multiple sample rates for the AES50 connections – 96 kHz for use with Midas PRO Series, and 48 kHz for use with Midas M32 Series.

All configuration settings for DL252 can be set either remotely from the mixing console, or directly via the intuitive and easy to understand front panel. DL252 features front panel switches for all configuration options with LED status indicators, which provide highly visible feedback of operational status over wide viewing angles and distances.

Clear indication is provided showing power supply output rail condition, AES50 and Ethernet network connection status and activity, choice of internal or external clock synchronisation, unit identification and communication mode setting.
