The Allen & Heath AB168 is a portable AudioRack that comes equipped with 16 XLR inputs and 8 XLR outputs when connected to a GLD digital mixing system. The AB168 unit connects over a single CAT5 cable to GLD mixers or to AR2412 or AR84 AudioRacks via a secure dSNAKE EtherCon port. A second EtherCon port is provided for daisy-chaining to another AB168 box or connection of a ME personal mixing system. AB168 auto updates its firmware to synchronize with the GLD system.

The rack's rugged design 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.

Features:

  • 16 Mic Preamps on XLR
  • Phantom Power LED per Input
  • 8 XLR Line Outs
  • dSNAKE Connection with locking EtherCon port
  • Additional locking EtherCon port for daisy chaining / ME personal mixing system
  • Rubber bumpers
