Up to two AR84s can be added to a GLD system, connected to a GLD-AR2412 AudioRack and / or direct to the GLD-80 mixer.

What does this all mean?
Regardless of your studios size more inputs are always helpful and the option to expand your unit helps you get more use out of it before needing to upgrade or expand.
Using one single Cat 5 cable you can place the AR0814 up to 120m from the mixer, with 8 XLR inputs and 4 XLR outputs available for the performers on-stage. The dSnake technology ensures that all remote inputs are fully integrated into your mixer with complete functionality. This ensures the sound quality and response you get on stage is the best it can be.
