Rio Series I/O units work just as well with Dante-capable devices
such as a NEXO NXAMP equipped with the NXDT104 card as they do
with CL Series consoles. Discovery and patching for the Rio I/O and
NXAMP can be managed directly from the CL console without the
need for a computer and Dante Controller software.

The Rio3224-D handles stage-side I/O, while Ri8-D units serve as a
portable input racks on stage and at the console position. An Ro8-D
is located in the hall’s or theater’s amp room, delivering audio to the
system’s power amplifiers.

Teamed up with a PM5D console for 96 kHz
operation
Rio Series I/O units can be used with a PM5D console and DME64N digital mixing engine
to create a 96 kHz system. Rio input signals are mixed at the PM5D, and then returned
to the Rio units after processing via the DME64N. Even relatively complex routing like
this can be easily managed via simple physical cabling and virtual patching via the Dante
Controller software.
