Audio Monitoring

1he-kyra-01KYRA

KYRA is a 1U audio monitoring device for signal control in MADI environments such as broadcast or PA installations. 
It incorporates an 8 x 2 mixer, allowing the operator to set up an 8-channel stereo mix from either eight mono or four stereo channels from the incoming MADI stream. 
The monitor mix is output to a pair of integrated speakers on the front panel. 
A headphone output on the front panel and a balanced line output on the rear are also provided as well as an AES3 I/O on the rear panel which allows for monitoring an AES3 signal or outputting the main mix.
