clickAR2412 is a 24 XLR input, 12 XLR output AudioRack. Adding an AR2412 to your Qu system lets you position some or all of your I/O up to 120m from the Qu mixer, connected over a single Cat5 cable running Allen & Heath's dSNAKE protocol. dSNAKE provides control to the remote preamp and all mic preamps are scene recallable. AR2412 also includes a Monitor port for connection to ME-1 personal mixers and an Expander port for daisy chaining to an AR84 AudioRack (Qu-24 only). 

  • This is required for full functionality of your GLD-80 digital mixer!
  • May be placed onstage and run to FOH with up to 400' of Cat 5 cable
  • Provides flexibility in the configuration of your live sound system
  • 24 XLR mic/line inputs (with phantom power); 12 XLR line outputs

The Allen & Heath GLD-AR2412 is the Main AudioRack for the company's GLD digital mixing system. The GLD-AR2412 includes 24 XLR inputs and 12 XLR outputs and connects to the GLD-80 digital mixer via inexpensive and readily available Cat 5 cable running Allen & Heath's dSNAKE protocol, allowing the GLD-AR2412 to be positioned up to 400' from the GLD-80. dSNAKE provides control to the remote mic preamps in the GLD-AR2412; all are scene recallable. For larger configurations, a GLD-AR84 Expander AudioRack may be connected to the GLD-AR2412 to add an additional eight XLR inputs and 4 XLR outputs.
