The SR-16 is a brand new remotely-controllable 16-in/16-out EtherSound stagebox from Innovason. Based on the proven technology behind Digigram’s AQONDA device, SR-16 offers extremely high quality audio control with state-of-the-art mic preamps in a compact and costeffective 2U format.
SR-16 is capable of transforming up to sixteen analog audio channels into as many EtherSound signals and injecting them into an EtherSound network (any topology). All of the components are of extremely high quality to ensure that audio quality remains uncompromised throughout.
Compatible with all existing EtherSound set-ups including ES-100 and ES-Giga, SR-16 is naturally fully controllable via Eclipse – channel assignment is performed from the Nova 2.0 GUI, and there is direct access for preamp gain and PH48V activation from the Eclipse control surface. Device configuration is fully saved in Nova snapshots, and there is no limitation regarding the number of devices that can be controlled. Alternatively, SR-16 can be controlled using any of the available EtherSound software management programs. By the same token, Eclipse is capable of detecting and controlling a Digigram AQONDA just as if it were an SR-16.
“SR-16 is ideal for set-ups with distributed inputs and outputs such as theatres, houses of worship, OB vans etc.” noted Innovason’s international sales director, Marcel Babazadeh. “It’s a perfect complement to our existing range of stage racks and a really cost-effective way of increasing channel count and control incrementally. Furthermore, it couldn’t be easier to manage – all you have to do is connect SR-16 to any EtherSound network, detect it via Eclipse or an ES software manager, assign your channels and mix!”

In keeping with its commitment to offer the widest possible choice of solutions for audio professionals, APG has launched a brand new analogue processor dedicated exclusively to stage monitoring applications with their new DX Series multipurpose loudspeakers. Developed with the idea of cost-optimisation in mind, the SPWX offers a simple, yet extremely high quality processing solution for the DX Series speakers in monitor applications in a cost-effective format.
The SPWX12/15 is a compact 1U 4-channel processor which was deliberately developed as an analogue product in order to enable zero latency when necessary. It allows the management of four independent monitor channels from DX12 and DX15. Each channel is switchable between DX12 and DX15. A push-button offers a choice between two types of low frequency response and a potentiometer enables you to adjust the tonal balance. An amplifier rack with SPWX12/15 processing is therefore perfectly adapted for use with either DX12 or DX15 or indeed a combination of the two.
According to APG’s Xavier Pion, the new SPWX processor is another tool which enhances the versatility of the DX range still further. “We developed the DX Series as a truly multipurpose range, and it is already earning its stripes in a multitude of different applications,” he explained. “However, just because you can use it in a lot of different ways doesn’t mean to say that you will, and we have to cater for every eventuality. For example, a rental company that wants a stock of DX loudspeakers exclusively for monitoring applications doesn’t need an all-singing, all-dancing expensive digital processor with lots of presets – although we could of course provide one of those if he wanted! What he actually needs is a high quality dedicated processor that he can put in his monitor rack and forget about, which is precisely what the SPWX is designed to do. It’s a much more costeffective solution for him, and still guarantees that his DXs will sound fantastic.”
The SPWX is the latest addition to APG’s comprehensive range of analogue and digital processors designed to optimise the performance of all APG loudspeakers in any given situation. For more details, please visit www.apg.tm.fr
