AXI 016 - 16 Output Audio Expansion Interface



Product Datasheet

The Extron AXI 016 is a half rack width, 16 output audio expansion interface for DMP 128 Plus audio DSP systems. The AXI 016 connects to EXP expansion port of the DMP 128 Plus, transforming the matrix from an 8 output device into a 24 output device. Since all of the high performance, low-latency DSP occurs within the attached DSP 128 Plus, no separate configuration is needed for the AXI 016. The AXI 016 audio expansion interface also supports audio DSP systems that integrate a DTP CrossPoint® matrix switcher.

Offering 16 analog outputs, in a compact 1U, half-rack width enclosure, the AXI 016 provides a powerful tool for AV system designers to create DMP 128 Plus systems that support larger distributed audio applications that were previously not possible using a single DMP 128 Plus DSP processor.

Expanded Routing Across a Single ProDSP Processor

The DMP EXP expansion port allows the AXI 016 to be linked together with a DMP 128 Plus unit via a single shielded CAT 6 cable. This creates a 24 output 24-bit/48 kHz system, allowing larger distributed audio applications to be configured with less hardware. Designers can create flexible, advanced output signal management scenarios expanding the capabilities of a single DMP 128 Plus processor. The DMP EXP expansion port on Extron DTP CrossPoint® matrix switchers allows an integrator to greatly expand the number of available audio outputs for a new or existing DTP System.

Flexible Routing Within the DMP 128 Plus

The DMP 128 Plus models feature an extensive mix matrix allowing all outputs, including the 16 expansion bus outputs used by the AXI 016, to be discretely sourced and routed from any input. When used with a DMP 128 Plus AT model, Dante audio sources can also be processed and routed to the outputs of the AXI 016.

Easy-to-Use DSP Configurator Software

The power of ProDSP is easily harnessed with the DSP Configurator Software. The flexible on-screen layout offers fast access to all of the digital audio signal processing tools. Designers can quickly get a snapshot view of the entire audio system, including processing blocks and routing assignments, all at once.


  • Adds 16 channels of line level analog output to a DMP 128 Plus system — Provides a cost effective approach to enable larger, more powerful systems to be run from a single DMP 128 Plus.
  • Connects with a shielded CAT 6 cable to the EXP expansion port on the DMP 128 Plus
  • Supports DSP systems that integrate a DMP 128 Plus and a DTP CrossPoint — The DTP CrossPoint EXP port can connect to a DMP EXP port via the THRU port on the AXI 016 to function as an integrated system.
  • Front panel signal, clip, and port LEDs — The AXI 016 provides LED's on the front panel for each output and port, for real-time monitoring of signal presence and port activity. A separate LED for each output illuminates as a warning whenever signal clipping is detected.
  • High signal density - 16 analog outputs in a compact 1U, half rack width enclosure
  • Highly reliable, energy-efficient external universal power supply included, replacement part #70-1174-01 — Provides worldwide power compatibility with high reliability and low power consumption for reduced operating costs. Includes a ZipClip 50 Mounting Kit to securely mount an Extron power supply onto most surfaces, including tables and lecterns.
