Allen & Heath AR2 84 Expansion Rack for GLD and Qu Mixers
AR84 is an Expander AudioRack for the GLD digital mixing system.
Each AR84 adds 8 XLR inputs and 4 XLR outputs to a GLD system. Up to two AR84s can be added to a GLD system, connected to an AR2412 AudioRack and / or direct to the GLD-80 mixer. Connection is over Cat5 cable running Allen & Heath’s dSNAKE protocol, allowing the AR2412 to be positioned up to 120m from the GLD-80 or GLD-112 mixer. dSNAKE provides control to the remote preamp, and all mic preamps are scene recallable. The AR84 is simply an audio interface. It cannot be used by itself. It must connect to the GLD or Qu mixer which is where the audio is processed. The AR84 is not compatible with Allen & Heath iLive Series components or ACE connection.
AR84 is now available in a choice of black or purple livery. Black models feature locking XLRs.
