Allen & Heath AB168 : 16 Input 8 Output Audio Rack
The Allen & Heath AB168 is a portable remote AudioRack for use with the
Allen & Heath GLD and Qu series in live and installation settings.
Featuring 16 mic preamps with Phantom Power indicators and 8 XLR line outs,
AB168 runs on Allen & Heath’s proprietary dSNAKE protocol and is compatible
with both the Qu and GLD ranges.
Adding an AB168 to a Qu or GLD system allows some or all I/O to be positioned
up to 120m from the mixer. The unit connects over a single Cat5 cable to the
Qu/GLD mixer or AR2412 AudioRack via a secure dSNAKE EtherCon port. A second
EtherCon port is provided for daisy-chaining to another AB-168 box or connection
of a ME personal mixing system. AB-168 auto updates its firmware to synchronise
with the system.
The rack’s rugged design, including rubber bumpers, renders it highly
roadworthy and allows it to be placed on the stage floor during performances.
Weighing in at just 4.8kg and featuring a sturdy carry handle, AB168 is also
designed for maximum convenience and portability. An optional rack mounting
kit is also available.
