Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the AVIOM16/o-Y1 A-Net Interface Card for Yamaha® digital
consoles, designed for use with Aviom’s Pro16® personal mixing and audio networking
products. All Pro16 products are powered by A-Net®, Aviom’s proprietary data transmission
protocol designed especially for the unique demands of live streaming audio. This User Guide
is designed to familiarize you with your new product and to have your system up and running
as quickly as possible.
Package Contents
The Y1 A-Net Interface Card box includes:
•• One Y1 A-Net Interface Card
•• User Documentation
Overview
The AVIOM16/o-Y1 A-Net Interface Card (or “Y1” card for short) provides a host of professional features

Pro16 Compatibility
The Y1 card’s A-Net output can be directly connected to:
•• A-16II Personal Mixer
•• A-16R rack-mounted Personal Mixer
•• A360 Personal Mixer
•• A-16D A-Net Distributor
•• A-16D Pro A-Net Distributor
•• AN-16/i v.2 Input Module
•• D800 A-Net Distributor
•• AN-16/o Output Module
•• AV-P2 Output Module
•• SB4 System Bridge
When using more than one input module in a Pro16 system, the Y1 A-Net Card can be connected to the
SB4 System Bridge to allow multiple Pro16 A-Net streams to be transmitted over a single Cat-5e cable.
Used in a Pro16e personal mixing system that includes the A360 Personal Mixer, the A-Net output from the
Y1 card may be connected to the A-Net In on the AN-16/i v.2 Input Module where the card’s digital data
will be merged and then distributed to the Personal Mixers.
P Note: The original (discontinued) A-16 Personal Mixer is not compatible with the Y1 card; these
Personal Mixers do not have the ability to follow sample rate changes from the host Yamaha
device clock source. Some early A-16R Personal Mixers are also not compatible. Contact
Aviom customer service for additional A-16R information.
Compatibility with Pro64
Many Pro16 products can be connected to a Pro64® A-Net system with the addition of the ASI A-Net
Systems Interface. The ASI translates Pro64 A-Net data into Pro16 data and separates the 64-channel Pro64
stream into up to four 16-channel Pro16 outputs, depending on the Pro64 sample rate being used.
Only Pro16 devices that have an A-Net In port such as A-Net Distributors, Personal Mixers, and output
modules are compatible with Pro64 and the ASI. Pro16 input modules and console interface cards cannot
send their data into a Pro64 network.
The Y1 card cannot be directly connected to a Pro64 network. It can, however, be used along with a Pro64
6416Y2 A-Net Interface Card installed in the same Yamaha digital console.

About A-Net
A-Net® is a proprietary high-speed data transmission protocol developed by Aviom, capable of sending
and receiving high-quality digital audio using readily available Cat-5 cables.
A-Net is based on the physical layer of Ethernet, a Local Area Network (or LAN) technology. This provides
A-Net with a mature and robust base on which to build. However, it is important to note that A-Net devices
are not compatible with Ethernet devices.
Some of the benefits of using A-Net to transmit digital audio are:
•• Virtually no latency; analog in to analog out is always less than one millisecond
•• No ground loops
•• Easy cabling using readily available components
•• An unlimited number of A-Net devices can be used in a system
•• Ease in spanning long distances between system components
There are two versions of Pro16 A-Net: the original Pro16 A-Net signal carries sixteen channels of digital
data while the enhanced Pro16e® version of A-Net is capable of carrying up to 64 channels of digital audio
data. Like standard Pro16 A-Net, Pro16e is a point-to-point digital audio protocol.
Pro16e A-Net data is intended for use with the A360 Personal Mixer which can take advantage of the higher
network channel count that Pro16e provides.
P Note: While the Cat-5e cables and connectors used on your Aviom products look like typical
computer Ethernet network connections, do not connect computers, routers, or other home
and business networking equipment to your Aviom products.
Y1 A-Net Card User Guide

About Category 5
The term Category 5 (also referred to as Cat-5) is broadly used to describe a type of high performance
network cabling used for data transmission purposes to connect computer networks and other devices.
A standard patch cable consists of four twisted pairs of copper wire terminated by RJ45 male connectors.
The cable assembly is used to provide connectivity between any two Cat-5 female RJ45 jacks.
A variation of the cable, called Category 5e (or Cat-5e), has largely replaced Cat-5 in the field; it uses additional
twists in the cable’s wire pairs to reduce interference in high-speed network applications. Additional
wire pair variations are found in Cat-6 and Cat-6e cables, typically used with gigabit networking devices.
Use Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables for all A-Net applications.
RJ45 Jack
Cat-5e Cable
P Note: While the Cat-5e cables and connectors used on your Aviom products look like typical
computer Ethernet network connections, do not connect computers, routers, or other home
and business networking equipment to your Aviom products.
Cat-5e Cables
Any standard Cat-5e UTP cable may be used with your Aviom products. If you need a longer cable for
a particular application, any computer store should be able to supply you with an appropriate cable. A
qualified technician should be able to build custom cables to any length.
For fixed or permanent installations, you have the option of running Cat-5e cables inside walls and
terminating them with readily available wall panel connectors that include the RJ45 jack. (Solid wire is
recommended for permanent installations.)
In addition to standard Category 5e cables, Cat-6 and Cat-6e cables may also be used.
P Note: When purchasing Category 5e cables, be sure to buy only standard Cat-5e UTP cables,
not those sold as crossover cables. A crossover cable is used for file transfer between two
computers and is not compatible with your Aviom equipment.
Cat-5 cables outfitted with the heavy-duty Neutrik EtherCon® connector may also be used in addition to
those that use the standard RJ45 cable connector.
Y1 A-Net Card User Guide

Cable Lengths
For Pro16 applications—connecting one Pro16 device to another—the Cat-5e cables used with your Aviom
products may be up to 500 feet (approximately 150 meters) in length between devices. For example,
connecting an AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module to an AN-16/o Output Module is a Pro16-to-Pro16 connection.

The maximum cable length specification applies to the total cable length between an A-Net Out port on
one device and the A-Net In port on the next A-Net capable device in your system.
Your cable length performance will be affected by a number of factors including the quality of the cables
used, and the number of passive devices such as cable couplers or passive wall panel interconnections in
use.
Stranded or solid Cat-5e cable may be used; stranded cable is easier to deploy on a stage while solid
core cable provides slightly better maximum distance performance. Solid core wire is typically used in
permanent installations in walls and across ceilings.
When using the optional AN-16SBR or SB4 System Bridge with Pro16 and Pro16e devices, the cable length
specification applies to the total cable length between the two active A-Net devices being connected with
the passive AN-16SBR System Bridge, plus all cables. This is also true when using a passive inline coupler to
extend cable lengths.
Pre-made cables in a variety of lengths and colors are available at most computer outlets. Cables may be
extended by using a simple passive device called an inline coupler to add length to existing cables (as long
as you do not exceed the specified maximum cable length). If you need a longer cable on occasion, this is
a simple solution. Note that the maximum cable length performance can be compromised by using inline
couplers or other passive connection devices.

AC Line Conditioning
Aviom products are digital devices and as such are sensitive to sudden spikes and drops in the AC line
voltage. Changes in the line voltage from lightning, power outages, etc. can sometimes damage electronic
equipment.
To minimize the chance of damage to your equipment from sudden changes in the AC line voltage, you
may want to plug your equipment into a power source that has surge and spike protection. Power outlet
strips are available with built-in surge protection circuits that may help protect your equipment.
Other options for protection of your equipment include the use of an AC line conditioner or a battery
backup system (sometimes referred to as an uninterruptible power supply, or UPS).
Cleaning and Maintenance Information
The exterior of your Aviom products should be cleaned with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. For tougher dirt,
you can use a cloth slightly dampened with water or with a mild detergent.
When cleaning your Aviom products, never spray cleaners directly onto the product surfaces. Instead,
spray a small amount of the cleaning solution onto a clean cloth first. Then use the dampened cloth to
clean the product.
P Note: Never use solvents or abrasive cleaners on the finished surfaces of your Aviom products.

To install the Y1 card:
•• Start with the power to the Yamaha mixing console off.
•• Remove the console’s power cord from the wall receptacle.
•• Remove the cover plate on the rear of the Yamaha expansion port to expose the
expansion connections.
•• Remove the Y1 card from its protective anti-static sleeve.
•• Slide the card into place, aligning the sides of the card with the support guides in the
expansion slot.
•• Press the Y1 card firmly in place to attach the multi-pin card connectors on the Y1 card
and Yamaha mixer circuit board backplane.
•• Attach the Y1 card permanently by tightening the two thumb screws on the rear panel of
the Y1 card.
Connect the Y1 card to other Pro16 A-Net devices using Cat-5e (or better) UTP cables.
P Note: Before powering up the console, read the following sections on operating modes.

Stereo Link
DIP switches 1-8 control stereo links; switches 9-10 control the MY modes and the test function. Switch handles are
shown in black.
Stereo Link Switches
DIP switches 1 to 8 of are used for the stereo link function. Stereo linking is possible when using Aviom’s
Personal Mixers (A360, A-16II and A-16R) for monitor mixing. Each DIP switch controls an odd-even pair of
channels; see the list below. When the switch is set to the “On” position (down), the channels are linked as
a stereo pair. If the switch is in the “Off “ (up) position, the channels are not linked and appear in all Pro16
devices an mono channels.
Stereo link changes can be made at any time, even while the Yamaha host console is running. All connected
Pro16 A-Net devices will instantly update and reflect the change. Compatible A-Net devices such as output
modules that do not respond to stereo linking will not be affected by changes to the link status.
DIP switch 1 to 8 settings:
•• Switch 1 - stereo link for channels 1 and 2
•• Switch 2 - stereo link for channels 3 and 4
•• Switch 3 - stereo link for channels 5 and 6
•• Switch 4 - stereo link for channels 7 and 8
•• Switch 5 - stereo link for channels 9 and 10
•• Switch 6 - stereo link for channels 11 and 12

This example shows a configuration where channel pairs 3-4, 13-14, and 15-16 are set for stereo operation. (DIP switch
handles shown in black.)
Mode Select Switches
Positions 9 and 10 of the DIP switch are used for MY card mode selection. There are four possible switch
combinations; three operational modes and one test mode are provided.
The Y1 card is scanned during the Yamaha console boot-up procedure only. It is therefore important to
remember that mode changes should be made only while the console is off. If it is necessary to alter the
Y1 card operational mode after the console has been booted, a console restart will be required in order for
the mode change to be recognized.
MY16 Mode (default)

MY16 mode offers 16 channels at 48kHz.
MY16 mode offers 16-channel output at a 48kHz sample rate. MY16 mode is not compatible with the PM1D
console; it must be set for MY8 mode.
The Yamaha console user interface will recognize the Aviom Y1 card as a generic 16-channel MY expansion
card. Names in text fields referring to the expansion card will display with a generic name (such as “MY16”),
depending on the model and software version of the Yamaha console.
In most cases, MY16 mode should be selected as the default setting.

Test mode can be used for troubleshooting a monitoring system. (DIP switch handles shown in black.)
In Test Mode, channels 1 through 4 output a continuous 1kHz sine wave test tone. This mode can be used
to troubleshoot an audio system. Make sure to set the Yamaha console’s internal sample rate to 48kHz when
using Test Mode.
When troubleshooting using the Y1 card Test Mode, if the 1kHz test tones are heard in channels 1 through
4 of a connected A-Net device, the Y1 card is operating properly.
Check the channel routing settings in the Yamaha console user interface to determine that audio is being
routed properly. As an option, download and use the Yamaha Studio Manager software to help diagnose
routing problems or simplify setting up channels routings to expansion cards.
Studio Manager is a free application available from the Yamaha website.

P Note: Before switching the Y1 card to Test Mode, lower the volume on any connected A-Net
devices, amplifiers, powered speakers, etc., to avoid sudden volume changes and/or possible
hearing damage
To exit the Test Mode, a console restart is required. Power off the Yamaha mixing console. Reset the Y1
card DIP switches to the desired operational mode position, and then reboot the Yamaha console.
Aviom Mode
Yamaha consoles do not recognize Aviom mode (Switch 9 on and switch 10 off). Use MY16 mode as the
default setting for the Y1 card.

Connecting Pro16 Devices
In a simple Pro16 system, the easiest connection method uses what is called a daisy chain. That is, each
A-Net device is connected in series. The first device in the chain receives the A-Net signal from the Pro16
input module. Each successive A-Net compatible device gets its A-Net connection from the A-Net Out jack
of the device preceding it in the chain.
Series Connection of A-Net Devices
The diagram below illustrates a series connection of A-Net devices.

Out
A-Net
In
Out
A-Net

A-Net
In this diagram, A-Net is connected from device to device using Cat-5e cable. The A-Net Out port on the first device
connects to the A-Net In port on the next, and so on.
There is one drawback to this connection method, however. If one A-Net device in the chain is disconnected
from the A-Net signal chain, all units beyond this point will not get any audio until the unit is reconnected
to a valid A-Net source.
A parallel A-Net connection solves that problem. By using an optional A-Net Distributor, parallel A-Net
connections are possible. In fact, any combination of series and parallel connections can be used to solve
even the most complex audio routing problems.

Parallel A-Net Routing
Connecting A-Net devices in parallel involves the addition of an A-Net distributor. Any number of A-Net
distributors can be added, creating an infinite number of digital splits.
Using an A-Net Distributor
The diagram below shows a variety of A-Net compatible components connected in parallel to an A-Net
Distributor.

The A-Net Out from the distributor is connected to each A-Net compatible device with a Cat-5e cable. Removing one
A-Net device has no effect on the other A-Net outputs being used.
When configuring an A-Net system, Pro16 modules can be connected in any order; simply connect A-Net
Out to A-Net In as needed.
