With Solidyne the future is today ...
The 16 channel DX822 console is the same as the DX816 but with 2 x 5-microphone modules instead of one.
The DX816 and 822 consoles, sold in 65 countries, mark a world milestone in advanced technology for new radio studios with limited budgets.
They offer balanced digital and analog inputs and outputs that meet all the needs of modern Radio, Production, News and TV channels
The attenuators are 15-year-old conductive ceramic and have ETM-VCA control that prevents the possibility of noise. It also includes 3 conference telephone hybrids managed by illuminated keypads. One of them operates cell phones via Bluetooth 4.0 wirelessly.
The console has independent stereo outputs for Air and Recordings and 5 monitoring channels
This way you can do two tasks at the same time.
The 5 microphones (10 in the 822 model) have a 4-band equalizer switchable to PGM or REC, specially designed for the human voice. Your announcers will have that special sound of the big consoles at a very high price, which your listeners will love.
4-band qualifier curves
Five dynamic microphones are driven on the DX816 from three faders. Or three condenser MICs with 48V phantom.
The console offers GPIO outputs for MIC and Line.
A Master MIC button on the panel sends all MICs on air.
A Tally Light that can be seen from all directions indicates to announcers that the console is ON AIR.
Solidyne consoles are the only consoles in the world to offer the new 15-year-long Conductive Ceramic dimmer technology. They are easily recognized for their remarkable softness as they can be moved by supporting a feather ...
The DX816 attenuators have a very different construction than conventional attenuators, as they slide smoothly on two cylindrical silver-steel bars with Teflon bushings. Solidyne's exclusive ETM-VCA technology means that console audio never passes through
a carbon track and therefore lasts for over 15 years.
The control turret indicates the number of digital channels used and can reach 8 channels with the two USB inputs / outputs connected.
At the bottom is the action of the audio compressor that levels the sound of all the microphones.
This exclusive device for Solidyne consoles allows you to automatically level, without using attenuators, the sound intensity of each of the speakers, thus ensuring that all of them can be heard on the air in a natural and perfect way.
USB digital connections combined with a Mini Three-line Telephone Exchange with Bluetooth
The two USB inputs of the DX816 allow a direct connection to one or two PC computers, without the need for audio cards and with a sound quality superior to that of more expensive cards. It allows you to play music from the automation software and trigger your announcements or sound effects just by opening the fader. It also allows direct connection to Skype and other free programs to communicate in conference and at no cost with everyone with digital sound quality.

An advanced 5-channel monitor panel allows independent management of 4 independent stereo outputs for: monitor control, headphones control, studio monitor and studio headphones
The console includes a mini-telephone exchange so that the operator or journalist can manage the attention of lines without help. Incoming calls cause the buttons to blink blue. Pressing the button turns red and attends the line in private, being able to talk hands-free with the operator.
Going up to the attenuator puts the line on the air in a conference of up to three simultaneous lines.
Everything is automatic due to its control logic.
The hybrid operates on both PGM and the Record channel.
It incorporates THREE telephone hybrids operated with 3-color illuminated keypads. The two fixed lines indicate call in blue turning red when going on the air.
The cell phone line is managed wirelessly by Bluetooth with a digital audio connection to the console, achieving excellent sound on the air.
Bluetooth is a wireless link that cell phones have. It is an international standard that replaces the annoying cables and connectors that were previously used. It has a range of 10 meters. The audio quality is much higher than the connection with cables since the Bluetooth link is DIGITAL and eliminates the distortion of the internal Codecs of the cell phone.
Solidyne is a pioneer in supporting Bluetooth technology in its consoles and telephone hybrids.
Advantages of operating with Bluetooth
The DX816 and 822 consoles offer this remarkable possibility that other brands do not have.
Very simple connection and a wide range of optional accessories
The DX816 is connected with standard connectors, but also incorporates standard RJ45 connectors.
The use of the advanced connection system with shielded RJ45 cables, compatible with StudioHUB, simplifies
the connection between Solidyne products and other modern brands.

The extra-flat cabinet, exclusive to Solidyne, allows it to be placed on a table without the need to cut it. Allowing a very comfortable handling without tiring the operator as the hands are at the same level as the arms
The AoIP option allows the console output to be sent directly over the Internet to the transmitting plant with the digital quality of a CD.
The RDS signal from the PC and even the type of music being played is also sent so that the audio processor automatically adjusts to the type of music played.
Your radio will always sound BETTER than the competition. Say goodbye to old analog links.
If your processor does not have AoIP audio input, you can use the Solidyne ADA102 decoder.
If you do not have Internet in the transmitter plant, an inexpensive 3G / 4G modem will solve the problem.
It will also be possible to interconnect with CD quality through AoIP technology with other consoles from other studios either in the same building or at different sites.
Modular electronics for easy maintenance
All electronics, keypads and controls are mounted in 6 plug-in modules that allow quick replacement. It is the great solution for studios that do not have high-tech equipment maintenance technicians.
