Here's What Allen & Heath Say About the GX4816
GX4816 is a 96kHz audio expander that provides high-input-count remote expansion for SQ, Avantis and dLive mixing systems, and for the AHM-64 audio matrix processor.
Each GX4816 is loaded with 48 dLive mic preamps with independent Phantom Power LED indicators, plus 16 XLR line outputs. Additionally, 2 DX ports are provided for connection to up to 4 DX Expanders for further I/O expansion. Connection to a ME Personal Mixing System is possible via the DX2 socket when used with SQ or Avantis.
GX4816 connects via a single Cat5e cable to an SLink socket on a SQ, Avantis or AHM-64, or to a gigaACE audio network card on a dLive system.
Connection to DX Expanders and the ME Personal Mixing System is also over Cat5e cable.
