Synapse D16Mio

Dante/AES67 Networked Audio Interface - 16 Channel I/O


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
  • Product Accessory kit available
