Synapse D16Mio

16 Channel I/O 1RU Dante™/ AES67 Interface


Product Overview

The D16Mio is a high performance, high channel density networked audio interface supporting Dante™ with AES67 interoperability.  The D16Mio features 16 channels of studio grade microphone preamplifiers using THATCorporation mic preamp technology, with up to 51 dB of digitally controlled gain in 3 dB steps.  Each mic input also supports P48 switchable phantom power and a switchable pad accommodation of pro line level inputs. 

The balanced line level outputs feature digitally controlled output attenuation from 0 to -100 dB.  All I/O are available independently via the Dante™ / AES67 network audio interfaces.  The D16Mio is available in terminal block or DB-25 options for optimum ease of connectivity and wiring. 

The D16Mio is an excellent solution for:

  • Audio expansion for any DSP based AV systems
  • Network audio connectivity for multi-channel amplification systems
  • Digital snake replacements
  • Single box audio network upgrade solutions for legacy AV systems


  • 16 studio-grade mic preamps with line level capability as well
  • Front panel network control of mic preamp gain, phantom power, mic/line input sensitivity
  • 16 line level balanced outputs with front panel or network level control
  • Useful for studio, live, rental and fixed installations requiring high numbers of high quality audio I/O
  • 16/24 bit, 44.1/48/88.2/96 kHz analog to Dante™ conversion

Synapse Family Common Features
