X32 + 4x S16 for fixed installation .... ´some questions
my name is Michael and I'm from Germany, so please excuse my bad english.
I have read the manual, read alot in this and other (mostly) german forums about the X32,
but I have a few questions for you.
I want to use the X32 in a fixed installation. 32 channels are ok. I dont want to use the local
inputs, cause I want to use the X32 at diffrent places connecting only the 2 AES-50 ports.
Using 3 or 4 S16 will make the installation easier but I have a problem with 8block input selection.
At one place I need only 6 inputs, on an other for e.g. I need 12.
The manual will not reely help me (not yet available in german)
First there is an easy question.
1. Can I connect directly a symmetric line signal to a S16 input?
2. If I understand the manual right I can patch 8 Inputs from one S16 to the 8 outputs of an other S16,
is this corrcect?
So my idea to be more flexible is.
I have the "stage" there is S16-A here I need 6 inputs
I have a technical room there is S16-B here I need 12 inputs
And I have a rack there are S16-C and S16-D here I (only) need 12 inputs
I connect the X32 to the two S16 in the rack with the seperate ports , daisy-chainig the the other S16
now the X32 COMPACT and three S16 arrived last Friday.
In a quick check with am pre-made configuration (thanks to XControl) everthing works as expected.
Quick Setup, quick routing, easy to handle Behringer did a grat job
However, I found that the S16 was quite warm after some time.
The S16 will be installed in air conditioned technical room, so can I use them in continous operation,
or should it be better to turn them off everyday? (The same question for the X32-C.
