The DL153 delivers legendary MIDAS sound quality in a cost effective, discrete 2U chassis that utilises time-tested and proven MIDAS technologies. Equipped with 16 premium MIDAS microphone preamplifiers with 2.5 dB gain steps and 8 balanced line level outputs and dual redundant AES50 network ports, the DL153 is the ideal partner to the PRO 1 / PRO 2 digital consoles — significantly increasing the network capacity and number of mic. Inputs and analogue outputs.

User interface controls and feedback is via an intuitively laid out front panel. The controls and LED indicators provide ease of use and instant feedback at a glance. All primary connections use high quality balanced XLR connectors.

Housed in a road-ready, rugged 19" 2U rack-mountable chassis, the DL153 is ideally suited for storage in standard flight cases (not included).
