The compact core for simple setups
The XS2 I/O DSP core is the choice for smaller On-Air studios, university radio stations or journalist booths. It is designed to work with SX2, TX or DX control modules with up to 24 faders.
Besides the control modules you can connect XS Multi-I/O Boxes and other XC I/O modules to build a modular DSP and I/O system requiring only 1 U or 2 U rack space.
The compact 1U DSP core is an independent DSP system which does not require a PC for operation. There are neither fans, hard discs nor batteries inside the XS2 I/O Core – this allows silent and low-maintenance operation directly in the studio.
This core will be configured with a simplified version of the Toolbox software called ‘SXConfig‘.
Extendable features for individual requirements
The 52-1950 Extended Feature Upgrade license allows to use the Toolbox for detailed configuration and creation of specialised TFT views.
The XS2 Core can also be extended to allow seamless networking with other Series 52 products, including DSP control software and remote control PC software.
All connections in one housing
The XS2 I/O Core 52-1830 combines DSP processing for up to 24 faders and I/O interfaces in one housing. In only 1 rack unit, you find the audio interfaces that are required for journalist desks, edit booths or small production studios.
Easy connectivity is the strong point of the XS2 I/O Core. Microphones, Headphones, Line and AES3 signals can be connected to standard XLR ports. Also USB audio, Toslink connectors for ADAT or S/PDIF and a 4ch/4ch Dante™ Audio-over-IP interface are included. Additionally, multi-channel options for MADI, Gigabit Audio and AES67 are available.
