16-input, 8-output stage box with 16 Midas microphone preamps, ULTRANET and ADAT interfaces.

The Midas DL16 stage box brings immense power to your live sound setup. With 16 Midas Pro microphone preamplifiers, the DL16 delivers exceptional audio quality to front-of-house and monitors. Dual AES50 ports even let you daisy chain up to three DL16s for a total of 48 inputs and 24 outputs. The DL16 is a touring sound engineer's dream come true.

Capture Pristine Audio With 16 Midas Pro Microphone Preamps

At the heart of the DL16 are 16 Midas Pro microphone preamplifiers, each delivering the stunning quality Midas is renowned for. With low noise and high headroom, the Midas preamps enable you to capture vocals, guitars, drums and more with exceptional clarity and detail. The Midas preamps are specially designed to handle anything from subtle acoustic instruments to blazing guitar amps while preserving sonic integrity. You get studio-grade audio right at the stage.

Flawless Digital Audio and Control Over Ethernet

The DL16 utilizes AES50 ethernet connectivity to transmit pristine 24-bit digital audio and control data over a single shielded CAT5 cable. This allows you to place DL16s at the stage and at monitor world, then run one cable to the Midas digital console without signal degradation. AES50 provides super low latency, clock synchronization between devices and redundancy for uninterrupted operation. No more heavy, tangled analog snake cables—just run a slim ethernet cable for outstanding audio quality and reliability.

Seamless Integration via Ultranet Protocol

Midas' acclaimed Ultranet protocol enables the DL16 to integrate seamlessly with other Ultranet devices like the Behringer X32 mixer, P16-M personal monitors and S16 stage box. Ultranet allows up to 16 channels of 24-bit digital audio, control data and power to be transmitted over a single CAT5 cable. This delivers a unified digital ecosystem with centralized control and plug-and-play operation between compatible Midas gear. The DL16's Ultranet output effortlessly connects to P16-M monitor mixers for in-ear control right from the stage.

Versatile ADAT Connectivity

The DL16 provides ADAT digital outputs in addition to AES50, giving you added flexibility. The ADAT connection allows you to output 16 channels to an external recorder to capture multitrack recordings of your shows. Alternately, by connecting an ADAT-equipped D/A converter like the Behringer ADA8200, you can access 16 extra analog outputs when more are needed. This makes the DL16 invaluable both for stage use and in the recording studio.
