Allen & Heath’s live sound product manager, Ben Morgan, comments, “DX168 makes it easy to add more I/O to any dLive system, and to deploy that I/O where it’s needed most. The rugged design ensures it is capable of standing up to the demands of on-stage use week in and week out, yet retains a lightweight and highly portable form factor that can also be rack mounted to offer maximum flexibility.”
