Yamaha TIO1608-D I/O Rack
The Yamaha Tio1608-D I/O Rack is a Dante-equipped I/O rack with 16 microphone/line inputs and 8 line outputs. In combination with TF series consoles, Tio racks can connect using up to three units. They also have a fast and easy set-up! *Requires optional NY64-D card
Plug In & Play Dante Stagebox Solution
The Tio1608-D is a Dante-equipped I/O rack with 16 microphone/ line inputs and 8 line outputs. Tio racks feature the same recallable D-PRE™ microphone preamplifiers as the TF series delivering extraordinarily natural and musical sound.
Flexible system expansion via Dante
Dante Network Audio Protocol features, not only in TF, but also in other Yamaha digital mixing consoles such as CL/QL. Combining these I/O racks and the various consoles can significantly increase the flexibility of system designs. Patching can be enabled via “Dante Controller” while Remote HA can be controlled by “R Remote” software.
Control Audio Patching and Remote HA not only from the TF but also from the CL/QL.
Please note that Remote HA of the Tio1608-D can be implemented only via the Primary port. Remote HA control of Tio1608D is not available on the secondary network. It is still not available even when you are using with TF or CL/QL. Tio1608-D: Digital Stagebox System with a Maximum of 3 units
Users wishing to expand on the TF’s already extensive input/output capability can easily add up to 3 units. This is done with the optional NY64-D expansion card and Tio1608-D I/O racks. Daisy-chaining the main console offstage and Tio1608-D I/O racks on stage using lightweight CAT5e Ethernet cables allows low-latency, high-quality sound transmission without the time-consuming transport and setup of bulky analog snakes.
Dante High-Reliability Network Audio Protocol
Dante has been adopted by the leading manufacturers and professionals in the sound reinforcement industry for its low jitter, low latency, and high sampling accuracy. Using the Tio1608-D you can easily configure a high-performance Dante stagebox system with little or no IT networking knowledge. T
Thanks to the flexibility of the Dante network protocol, TF Series consoles can connect to an extensive range of Dante-enabled equipment such as R Series I/O racks.
Fast and Easy QUICK CONFIG Mode
Enable the QUICK CONFIG mode on the Tio1608-D, to automatically make system configuration easy on all of the connections. This includes network settings and audio patch settings. After confirming QUICK CONFIG mode is active on the TF console and Tio racks, simply set a UNIT ID for each Tio1608-D, then daisy chain the TF console and the Tio racks. Turn on the power and you’re ready to go!
Simple and Flexible Input Selection with Tio1608-D
Once the basic configuration is complete you can easily assign inputs to best suit your system setup. By using the ALL INPUT function, users can assign all inputs to the Tio racks, the TF console or a PC/Mac device instantly. Users can also change each input to receive signal from multiple locations so that users can effectively use all inputs.
Recallable D-PRE preamplifiers
What’s more, the Tio1608-D inherits the natural, musical sensibility that we pursued in the development of the TF Series. Mechanical construction, circuit board layout, power supply, grounding, and parts selection are all executed with meticulous attention to detail and quality, combining with exhaustive performance and listening tests at each stage of development.
The Tio1608-D features the same recallable D-PRE microphone preamplifiers as the TF Series. As a result, providing a consistent, natural, musical sound throughout the entire system.
System expansion with Tio1608-D
Finally, Tio1608-D allows you to easily expand a TF digital mixer system up to 40ch inputs/24ch outputs. System setup uses a Plug In & Play method. Simply connect Cat5e cable, select the device IDs and the system is ready. Remote HA control is available via Cat5e. StageMix App allows wireless remote control of the console from the arena, the stage or the audience etc.
