Ro8-D Output Rack & Ri8-D Input Rack

We're proud to announce our latest addition to the CL/Rio lineage; the Ro8-D Output Rack and Ri8-D Input Rack.  The Ri8-D sports 8 mic/line inputs with the same natural sonic quality and musical characteristics that are present in the rest of the Rio line, the Ro8-D provides 8 line level outputs perfect for amp rooms and monitor console racks. This new offering of 1U rack space units maintains the same Dante Network Protocol present in our CL Series of mixing consoles and our current Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D Input/Output units.
Ri8-D & Ro8-D
If you've got a CL5 with a couple Rio3224-D boxes the Ri8-D and Ro8-D would make the perfect addition; allowing you to place inputs and outputs specifically where you need them in your venue.  The Ri8-D and Ro8-D share the same head amps and sound as their larger Rio relatives just in a smaller and more manageable 1U package for those times when you don't need all your inputs and outputs all at one location.  See the CL system example below to visualize just a couple of the many possibilities.

The Ri8-D and Ro8-D also communicate with our other digital mixing consoles and engines fitted with a Dante-MY16-AUD expansion card.  The Ri8-D's head amps can be controlled from one of our compatible consoles like the M7CL or LS9.  A full system example incorporating a PM5D & DME64N with various Rio Series units can be seen below.  You can even use any of the Rio units with a PM5D and/or DME64N and run at 96kHz.

For more information on the brand new Ri8-D, Ro8-D and the rest of the CL/Rio lineup be sure to check out our website at YamahaProAudio.com

All the best,
