Flexible Digital Mixing Ecosystem

The DL32 is a robust 32 x 16 digital stage box solution in an incredibly versatile and powerful format. Equipped with 32 of Midas' remote-controllable microphone preamps, endless connectivity (including AES50 and ULTRANET compatibility), and a compact 3U rack-mountable design, the DL32 is the ultimate choice for front-of-house applications.


Legendary Midas Sound Quality

Midas have successfully achieved legendary status in the audio world. Their microphone preamps are revered all over the world, with their vintage and modern-day equipment becoming highly sought-after. The DL32 is no different - featuring 32 award-winning Midas Pro remote-controllable mic preamps, this powerful stage box delivers jaw-dropping sonic performance combined with intuitive and flexible operation.


Midas have always taken a no-compromise approach to their designs, which is why so many individuals regard their preamps to be some of the best-sounding in the industry. The DL32 continues Midas' heritage of phenomenal performance, delivering years of knowledge and experience directly into your hands.



Incredible Range of Connectivity

As part of Midas' incredible M32 system, the DL32 boasts an immense array of connectivity. For example, two DL32 stage boxes can be cascaded using the device's built-in AES50 ports, allowing you to make use of up to 64 mic/line inputs as well as 32 balanced outputs. The DL32 also features an ULTRANET port that allows you to directly connect to Turbosound iQ Series loudspeakers, as well as Behringer's Powerplay P-16 Personal Monitoring System, opening up the capacity to feed up to 48 individual monitor mixers. On top of all of this, the stage box also features two opical ADAT sockets and AES-3 (AES/EBU) for connecting up to outboard devices, MIDI I/Os, and a handy USB port for system updates. With such a vast range of expandable connectivity options, the DL32 can instantly form the basis of a sophisticated front-of-house or monitoring system with the capability to interface with a huge range of equipment with ease.


Seamless ULTRANET Integration

Combining the expertise of a multitude of world-class companies, ULTRANET has been created to deliver a revolutionary workflow system for live performance and studio applications. ULTRANET allows you to transmit up to 16 channels of 24-bit digital audio over a CAT5 cable to ULTRANET-compatible devices in your rig. These devices include mixers, I/O stage boxes (including the DL32), active speakers, and personal monitoring systems.


ULTRANET offers a significant amount of advantages of traditional analogue systems, including complete protection from radio frequency interference, elimination of signal crosstalk, and incredibly intuitive operation. It allows you to save time setting up, whilst maintaining incredible sound quality and performance. This unique digital eco-system provides you with exceptional control over every single aspect of your workflow with the benefit of being able to work remotely from a single location in your venue.
